Massey University Fabrications Laboratory. Website for marketing Fablab and managing in-house machinary booking availability
Fablab needed a relatively simple site - reactive to their brand, responsive and optimised for different devices, and a portal for sharing their projects and successes with the world. Managing content internally and being able to make ongoing tweaks and changes to the site was also a priority - as was using Open Source technology where ever possible - meaning that the Drupal 7 CMS was a perfect match for them. An advanced, tailored calendar system also manages the booking of their machines - from laser cutters to 3d printers, all can be booked online by students or tradespeople. The system also allows the administrators to reserve machine availability by date-ranges, allowing them to close bookings for special events or group training sessions.
