Test Facility Design

Applus+ IDIADA Test Facility Design offers a wide range of services focused on the design and development of automotive testing facilities. With in-house expertise in international automotive testing, engineering, and homologation, we are well-equipped to handle complex projects and provide comprehensive solutions to our clients. Our team has participated in more than 100 worldwide projects and has developed our own first-class Technical Centres around the world.

Proving ground design

Our team is capable of developing all kinds of automotive test facilities during all project phases, from the feasibility study to the operation. From traditional testing to new mobility, facilities are built to the highest standards and can be customized to meet specific requirements.

In addition to test tracks, we offer test laboratory development solutions. As an independent company, we assess our clients during the purchasing process of the test equipment, analyzing the real needs and optimizing our clients’ investment.

Development and feasibility studies

Our team also provides development and feasibility studies of testing facility projects to provide a conceptual design, preliminary test requirements and financial figures of an Automotive Technical Center. This information will be helpful for our clients to promote the project among stakeholder and estimate the expected investments.

Special pavements

We offer services for the development of special test track pavements, ensuring that they meet the required specifications for each project. Applus+ IDIADA has developed its own mixtures, resulting from extensive R&D activities. Special pavement such as Wet Handling asphalt, Noise Test ISO10844 surface or special inputs for NVH or durability are developed, built, and validated by our engineers.

Digital testing facilities

Applus+ IDIADA offers digital testing facilities for virtual testing, allowing our clients to simulate test scenarios even before they become a reality. This allows potential issues to be identified and adjustments to be made before the real infrastructure is executed, saving time and resources in the process.

Construction supervision and commissioning

During the construction phase of the project, Applus+ IDIADA provides on-site construction supervision to ensure the correct implementation of the automotive items and the proper quality. Once the facility is built, commissioning of the tracks and labs ensures that the facility is built according to test requirements and operates effectively from day one.

Maintenance, operations, and management

For clients looking to operate their testing facilities, we offer management services and business models where IDIADA can support the smooth operation and financial success of the facility.
