Haworth Tompkins taking part in PPE production for the NHS 17.04.20

The National 3D printing society have teamed up with Medical Supply Drive UK, Optimus Medical and a selection of distribution companies to ensure approved supplies of face shields get to key workers currently fighting against Covid-19.

Haworth Tompkins are part of the team of architecture and design practices currently 3D printing the visor section of face shields. At the moment there are around 1500 3D printers all over the UK collectively working to produce 45,000 visors a day.

Our Model Maker Ellie is printing the mounts of the face shields at home to ensure quality control and as sterile an environment as possible. Volunteers from the practice are delivering boxes of printed PPE to collection points across London. From here the 3D printed mounts will be disinfected, a clear plastic screen attached, and the fully assembled masks will be distributed to those in urgent need of PPE supplies.
