Winter Test Proving Ground

Winter Test Proving Ground

Inner Mongolia, China

Service: Functional Design
Client: IDIADA Automotive Technology
Period: 2009

GPO was awarded by IDIADA with the Functional Design of a test track center for the testing of engines at very low temperatures (over ice and treated snow). This center is located at the North of the Republic of China, in an area where temperatures don’t exceed -30 degrees at least three months out of the year.

The main building contains the common service areas and the workshops, which were designed all in the same building to ensure that staff and clients did not have to go outside unless it was extremely necessary. The main challenge of this center was that certain tracks required to have asphalt areas compatible with polished ice areas, this is why there is heated asphalt in some segments of the track.

The center consists of an area with permanent soil tracks for testing ground handling, braking, ramps, off-road, urban driving simulations, tracks over ice on artificial lakes, and over 5.000 sq.m. of attached buildings.
