Project Overview

We designed a new testing and commissioning facility for Bombardier, the rail engineering and aluminium car body manufacturers, at its Litchurch site in Derby.

Bombardier is manufacturing the new ‘Aventra’ trains for the London Crossrail railways and this industrial facility gives them with the space to provide ongoing maintenance.

The main shop building was designed as an efficient and cost effective thermal enclosure for the testing, commissioning and sales activities. The twin portal frame structure has insulated metal cladding on the walls and roof, providing a robust, durable and low maintenance shell. WalkSafe roof-light panels are incorporated into the roof cladding, providing high levels of day-lighting with minimal maintenance.

The new two-storey office is an efficient, light and hard-wearing environment for the users and is integrated into the activities in the main shop.
