We work with clients in the commercial property market to design and create productive working environments that are environmentally sound and commercially viable.
Rolton Group has shaped the environments that provide a working framework for thousands of people across the UK. The work we did for Aston Martin and for the Rover Group are examples of the way that creativity and engineering know-how can create world-class working environments.
Rover's Group Design and Engineering Centre is a state-of-the-art facility, designed for automotive designers. We were selected by Rover Group as project partner and provided civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical professional engineering services.
The construction of GDEC was founded upon partnership methods of design and procurement; the success of this approach achieved a 40 per cent reduction in cost and time over traditional procurement methods, and the project won numerous awards.
The project design featured many unique engineering solutions, for passive fire engineering, architecturally exposed structure, passive and active acoustic control, internal and external lighting, solar gain control, and centralised energy centres and plant.
The Aston Martin facility was described by its CEO Dr Ulrich Bez as "probably the best facility of its type in the world, and the perfect showcase of how to design and build innovative sports cars." The facility's stunning appearance is only part of the story: by working closely on the mechanical and electrical engineering elements of the design we were able to maintain aesthetic appeal while significantly reducing the building's carbon footprint.
BAE and Derby Estates engaged Rolton Group to develop a new £10m headquarters for AEA Technology plc. This 90,000 sq ft office development was designed to the highest specification, using materials and techniques that helped re-define development in the area. The building included the latest technology in environmental systems and the finished product has become a model for environmental services design.
