Ford Diesel Centre Dagenham

Ford Diesel Centre Dagenham

Austin-Smith:Lord was appointed designer of the masterplan for this 35-hectare Ford plant in East London, from detail design to implementation, as well as to work on a new Diesel Centre. The project turned the existing plot of land into a supplier park and a centre of excellence for the manufacture of diesel engines for the Ford Motor Company.

Designed as a landmark scheme within the Thames Gateway redevelopment, this state-of-the-art car factory is considered an exemplar project. The plans for Ford’s high-tech diesel engineering and manufacturing facility combine product development and assembly in an innovative workplace environment that integrates the designers and engineers with their manufacturing colleagues to increase Dagenham’s diesel engine build capacity.
