The Illusion Projects shop has moved.
The previous shop was actually four spaces together, plus one across the road. Originally, the company had moved into two units that had an opening between. As the company was growing, Illusion Projects kept leasing more units and knocking holes through the walls. They had grown to four connected units; one was storage only, one for CNC and the other two for workspace. They also had a unit across the road for assembling big projects. It was not an ideal situation but had been great for growing the company. There were no more units left so they couldn’t expand any further.
At the end of 2014 Tim knew he needed to consider moving it all into one space. He spent almost a year looking and planning the move.
Once the new space was ready, the team began moving everything non-essential to daily operations and getting the electricians to install the power needed for the CNC machines. Then the day came to pull the plug and move everything else. In the end they were out of production for just 4 days (2 were weekend days).
The new shop has 12,000 sq. ft. of workspace with areas for prop display, assembly and a fantastic mezzanine floor for parts storage. It allows Illusion Projects to handle larger projects and more projects at the same time. Now everyone has to walk much further to get anything!
