Micro-X is a high-tech manufacturing facility located in the recently realised mixed use innovation precinct beneath the refurbished frame of the main assembly building [MAB] of the former Mitsubishi car plant in Tonsley, South Australia.

The built form was developed to meet both the specific requirements of the tenant, Micro-X, and to utilise a program that is adaptable for expansion and to allow for future tenant change.

The building comprises eight pods developed for the project by KNCT and a purpose made manufacturing facility comprising a simple steel frame clad with metal encased PIR panelling. The language is intentionally industrial informed by the setting and the need for speedy erection. The result is cost effective, flexible and has met all the tenant and RenewalSA’s expectations.
