Xi Engineering

Lasers, Robots and Pandas? No, not the plot of the latest action film, but rather projects which the team at Xi have been working on over the last year.
Although diverse themes, what ties these projects together is that they each required a sensitive and scientifically rigorous and creative approach.  As a group of passionate, curious and diligent engineers who can make physics work for you, the team at Xi is always happy to have a quick chat about your latest project or concept.
To  find out more about how the team works, take a look at the project lifecycle infographic.

Acoustics and Pandas

Xi have been working on a new giant panda habitat at Edinburgh Zoo. The move for the pandas to the current African Plains location is related to the plans for the redevelopment of the former Corstorphine Hospital, which neighbours the zoo. Our Project Engineer, Murray Snaith has been working as part of the panda habitat design team to develop the new enclosure and ensure that the pandas are protected from the noise and vibration associated with building work at the hospital site.
