Entrepreneurship

The Facility Maker Space

The Facility opens our Engineering Technology Department (an 11,000 square foot building with state-of-the-art equipment) to the local community and provides a collaborative space where ordinary people with extraordinary ideas can come together and gain access to the tools, training, and community you need to turn your thoughts into things.

The Facility is based on a DIY philosophy and the launch of our Rapid Proto Lab gives you hands on access to the most essential, exciting, and versatile Makerspace equipment: a Laser Cutter, 3D Printers, a CNC Router, and 3D Scanners. This is a game changing opportunity for Makers of all kinds: artists, inventors, entrepreneurs, students, educators, hobbyists, side-giggers, and world changers.

When

Initially, the Rapid Proto Lab at The Facility is open evenings (5-8 p.m.) from Tuesday through Thursday, by appointment. Subject to change.

Where

Monroe Hall - 6606 196th Street Southwest, Lynnwood, WA 98036

Future Plans

During our next phases of development, The Facility will continue to expand our hours of operation while launching additional access to a wide variety of tools enabling you to prototype your projects using a broad array of technologies from woodworking and metal fabrication to composites and mold-making.

We're looking forward to seeing you here and continuing to explore how The Facility can energize your success.
