Three buildings, totaling 70,000 square feet, were designed to meet the specific needs and functions for Eberspaecher exhaust and heater division. A business centre building, a prototype laboratory building for research and an engineering testing building; all inter-connected with glass enclosed passage corridors.

The architecture of the overall buildings, both exterior and interior, was designed to adhere to and be cohesive with the company’s global technology and branding image.
