Integration of intellectual architecture, stimulating engineering, and the provocative industrial system has resulted into the assemblage of such an epitome of construction.

This splendid design comprises of a central block with two levels, and a perpendicular wing called the bridge’ on the second level of the main block. The campus consists of four buildings: engine assembly, body shop, paint shop and final assembly.
EFFICIENT AND COLLABORATIVE EDIFICE
The colossal space has been prudently allocated into numerous discrete buildings with separate vertical dissections triggering minimum interlude between large spaces.
The structure of the building is premeditated in such a way that it sanctions immaculate interface between different areas, the assembly lines, the chassis warehouse, the door warehouse and the inner finishing divisions.

THE ASSEMBLY LINES
The core of the running of the plant, this entire appliance is suspended from the ceiling, and it allows the conception of a completely open workspace.
