Automotive workplace design
AB Dynamics, Bradford-on-Avon
AB Dynamics is a global leader in vehicle testing equipment. They’d almost doubled in size in three years and urgently needed more space. SRA’s design is both practical and progressive – a cohesive form with clever architectural solutions to suit their brand image.
We increased the internal floor area by 25% with only a marginally bigger footprint. The building now also contains all the conferencing, administration, manufacturing and storage facilities the company needs, in a flexible space that can be easily reconfigured.
Thoughtful details include orientating the new structure to minimise solar heat gain and studding the roof with north-facing skylights. This allows the manufacturing floor to be flooded with natural light, which is essential for technicians.
Views from the ground and first floor are magnificent. It all creates a HQ with a sense of purpose and presence, setting the perfect tone for future success.
