The work was carried out by Chilton, Waters and Stutchbury prior to merging with Ichthus Architects in 2008 to form Waterside Architects Ltd.
The project involved the complete refurbishment and reordering of an existing test shop, including new extended entrance and roof mounted plant room. The commission also included detailed integration of the engine test cells and control rooms, including industrial design of instrumentation booms etc. The building is fully vehicle accessible, with high speed roller doors, which also allow personnel access. The plant room on the roof is screened with inverted aluminium louvres, obscuring vision from ground level.
