Client Background

Ricardo is a leading provider of technology, product innovation, engineering solutions and strategic consulting to the world’s automotive, transport and energy industries.

Points of note

The fast track office took just 5 weeks to complete. The workplace design brief to create the new Cambridge Technical Centre included not only the high quality office refurbishment of the main office and front of house areas but the construction of a ground floor research laboratory, test bench area and testing garage.

The Client facing areas needed to be modern, bright and futuristic.

High gloss materials were mixed with bold colours and even “go faster stripes” to add energy to the reception and meeting spaces.

The design also made as much use of the existing fit-out as possible to help reduce time and cost.
