Anthony Best Dynamics supplies advanced testing systems to the global motor industry. They needed a new HQ and a factory re-design. The result is a striking, unified form that reflects technological excellence.

Engineering workplace design

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 an HQ with a sense of purpose and presence, setting the perfect tone for future success.
