Harnessing DKA's experience for R&D innovation

The Institute of Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) is a state-of-the-art, £60m automotive testing and research institute for the University of Bath, which will lead the UK’s development of ultra-low emission vehicles.

“ A leading test space for manufacturers to collaborate with university engineers and postgraduates... the centre will not only develop more efficient performance, but develop battery and electric car technology ”
James Bastable - Director

When complete, the specialist hub will support collaborative research with the automotive industry to develop future generations of ultra-low emission vehicles. As the industry moves away from combustion engines, the centre will not only develop more efficient performance, but develop battery and electric car technology. Its location on the Bristol and Bath Science Park will create a regional hub for associated industries and research.

Procured via the University Framework, the project is being designed in collaboration with Stride Treglown architects. The joint venture pools our respective strengths, with DKA being appointed as ‘Technical Architect’ to lead and deliver all the specialist automotive test and process building accommodation and equipment. Our strong sector experience with industry leading clients such as Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, Ricardo UK Limited and Millbrook Proving Ground together with specialist equipment suppliers such as Horiba and AVL will prove invaluable in successful delivery of the project.
