The University of Bath is constructing the £60 million Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) in the Bristol and Bath Science Park in the United Kingdom. Designed by Stride Treglown and DKA, the two-story, 143,000-sf facility will provide sophisticated R&D labs for the creation of ultra-low emission vehicles. The structure will also house testing suites, prototyping workshops, offices, a business incubator, and instructional spaces for engineering training programs. Supporting collaborative research with industry partners including Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, and McLaren, the IAAPS will be a global center of excellence for the development of advanced automotive technologies. The project team includes general contractor Rydon, project manager Turner & Townsend, cost consultant Fulkers Bailey Russell, civil and structural engineer WSP, and MEP engineer SES Engineering Services. Construction began on the facility in October of 2019 and completion is expected in fall of 2020. Operations at the site will commence in early 2021.
