Mercedes AMG HPP Technology Centre

Site Master Planning and campus delivered by DKA

Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains developed their site in Brixworth, Northamptonshire to centralise all their operations associated with Formula One Powertrains. DKA acted as lead consultants from project inception to completion and were responsible for all aspects of project delivery. The scheme included site master planning and infrastructure, extensive new build with associated extension and alteration to the existing building to create a state-of-the-art facility for the design, development, manufacture and testing of Grand Prix engines and Powertrains.

“ DKA were also involved in the specialist interior design of the main reception and staff restaurant, ensuring the spaces serviced not just functional needs but also those of the staff, business and marketing. ”
James Bastable - Director

The facility accommodates VIP visitors and was designed to be a flagship development that could be used for marketing purposes as well as the functional and process requirements; as striking the right balance between aesthetic and functionality was key to the project. Coordination between base build and fit out operations was essential, and this was considered from day one of the project.

DKA were also involved in the specialist interior design of the main reception and staff restaurant ensuring the spaces serviced not only the functional needs, but also the staff, business and marketing needs. Design features include full-size wall art and engine and trophy displays, set within high quality materials and finishes.

The original site development master plan protected for future development on the site and this aspiration has been realised through the recent completion of a new ‘Hybrid Technology Centre’. DKA were lead consultant for this project from its inception to completion.

The building provides a state-of-the-art facility for the build, assembly and testing of the full hybrid systems associated with current Formula One Powertrain technology.
