AVL Brick-and-Mortar Solution

Your partner in project design and realization.

We offer development up to complete tech centers, from early planning to full operation, for greenfield
and brownfield sites. This section focuses on our brownfield expertise and offerings.

AVL Brick and Mortar Solution

Our customers have test facilities worldwide. We are frequently requested to support them in modernizing or repurposing their testbeds. Reasons for this can range from upgrading to the latest state-of-the-art equipment  to a complete re-purposing. The starting point is often a conventional combustion-related testbed that can be used in the future for developing battery electric powertrains, hydrogen fuel cells, or hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines. It can also be repurposed for brake wear emissions testing, among other uses.

Rebuilding a test facility involves analyzing and resolving numerous issues. The layout must support the desired workflow while considering safety requirements and accommodating existing infrastructure and constraints. Detailed engineering is necessary to derive specifications for bid documents, and submittable documents for building and facility permits must be prepared. The project must be scheduled, supervised, and documented. Identify and contract the appropriate partners, continuously monitor progress, and commission and sign off on the final result.
