Swindon Makerspace opened its doors in May 2016 with a small 600 sq ft workshop in BSS House which is located in Cheney Manor. After a year of rapid growth it was obvious they needed more space, so they took on another 300 sq ft unit whilst starting construction of a mezzanine floor above their existing workshop.

Thousands of volunteer hours later, that major construction project was completed and now Swindon Makerspace have a 1600 sqft workshop comprising a Metal-shop, Wood-shop, Electronics & Craft Room, Fabrication room (for the Laser Cutter and CNC Mills), Spray Booth, Project Storage, Members Lounge and a Kitchenette.
