RemakerSpace is a Cardiff Business School and PARC Institute not-for-profit initiative dedicated to enabling the circular economy and ending planned obsolescence by extending the lifecycle of products. We work with community groups, businesses, and education providers to drive the circular economy in Wales and beyond.
Located at Cardiff University’s Social Science Research Park, RemakerSpace is a 1 million pound facility hosting £600,000 of equipment that has been funded by the Welsh Government’s Circular Economy Fund and considerable contribution by Cardiff Business School.
RemakerSpace offers a unique combination of equipment including conventional tools in our purpose built workshop through to state of the art 3d printers and visualisation suite.
The Centre was created to support and promote re-manufacturing and repair to help Wales become a world leader in the transition to a circular economy.
It focuses on addressing the following areas in order to drive fundamental changes to the way we design, consume and dispose of products:
- increasing consumer awareness of the benefits of reuse, repair, and re-manufacturing to extend product life cycles and help create a more sustainable world
- providing businesses with the skills and equipment needed to develop new commercial opportunities based on remanufacturing and repair services
- rethinking the design of products with an emphasis on repair and after-life considerations.
RemakerSpace enables organisations to fully exploit technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D Printing) and innovative solutions for repair, remanufacturing and re-use.
