Designed by Ridge and Partners LLP, Frenger® are proud to have been selected as the specialist manufacturer for space conditioning at Aston Martin Formula One team's new £200-million-pound factory, supplying the state-of-the-art open plan design and technical offices with their Active Multi Service Chilled Beam units, otherwise known as MSCBs.
Construction of the all-new campus began in September 2021, just a stone's throw away from the historic Silverstone Circuit, with the project consisting of three main stages, starting with the factory building as a part of phase one, which was designed with performance, sustainability, and wellbeing at its heart.

Designed to fuel Aston Martin's charge towards the front of the grid, the purpose-built facilities deliver exactly what the team needs, allowing for better communication and collaboration, accelerated car development and space for a growing workforce.
Frenger's Active MSCBs were installed in the bespoke open plan technical and design offices located on the second floor of the main building, helping to provide excellent levels of Thermal Comfort in a space carefully designed with optimum productivity and occupancy Wellbeing in mind.
Frenger's MSCB technology combines many building services in one unit 100% prefabricated in a controlled factory environment to provide easy plug and play installation and therefore shortening the onsite building program time.
This also allows architects the opportunity to tailor the MSCB units' aesthetics to compliment the architecture of the building.
The use of Frenger's Active MSCB units can also maximise the floor-to-ceiling height as incorporating Heating, Cooling, Fresh Air Deliver, LED Lighting, and other building services removes the need for a suspended ceiling system, thus creating the appearance of greater volumetric room space.
