Groundbreaking launch at FLUX

Assistant Minister of Innovation Wyatt Roy and guests were presented with a 3D virtual display of the space, which will be the largest co-working office environment in Perth upon completion in March 2016.

The Assistant Minister’s participation in this next step for innovation in WA is a  demonstration of the Federal Government’s commitment to the high profiled Innovation and Science Agenda launched by the Prime Minister earlier this month.

Co-working spaces need to be designed to cater for a range of end-users said Hawaiian Director and CEO, Russell Gibbs.

“For this space to become a platform for WA business incubation it cannot simply be a space to sit, but a place to connect, develop, engage and grow; the design is vital in achieving this” Mr Gibbs continued.

The design has been curated to encourage users to connect and support innovation. Catering to both individuals and collaborative groups, as well as a dedicated area for nurturing a productive and globally competitive Australian resources industry, CORE.

Spacecubed Managing Director Brodie McCulloch says, “FLUX will focus on providing access to a number of leading technologies, including 3D printing facilities, a virtual reality hub and a ‘Maker Space’.

“By reducing the barrier to accessing these technologies of the future, we will be able to provide new market opportunities”.

From today until the March 2016 opening, Western Australian innovators and entrepreneurs  can view the 3D virtual display, developed by WA based Adapptor, at FLUX in Parmelia House.
