Engine Shed Projects

Engine Shed exists to create an economy that is innovative, sustainable, inclusive and growing. We believe this happens most effectively through collaboration and action. 30% of our annual surplus goes into our “Development Fund,” which is used to reinvest in the facility, and deliver and seed projects that fulfil our mission.
