We're embarking on a new project for Coventry University to create a Centre for Applied Low Carbon Propulsion Systems, to be tenanted by FEV - the international engineering service provider. FEV is working with the university to create the clean transport technology centre in Coventry that spearheads research into advanced powertrain (the main components that generate drive for a motor vehicle) development over the next decade.
The project comprises of enabling works associated with an Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) Intrusive Magnetometer Survey to the footprint of the proposed building footprint.The site is bounded by a private residential development, Coventry University Technology Buildings and a local authority-owned highway (i.e Deasey Road). The facility will include a single engine test preparation bay (TB Comms) and a further four engine test cells, a workshop, first-floor offices, including ancillary external plant compounds and underground fuel tanks. The project will include mechanical and electrical installations including a mist suppression system, and installation of specialist bottled gases.
In March the external cladding will be progressing, access scaffolding will be being erected, external services being installed and concrete GF and upper slabs will be nearing completion.
