Case Study

Hexagon Metrology Design and Fit-out

Northampton, UK


How we helped

Hexagon Metrology

DSP (Interiors) Ltd worked alongside Hexagon Metrology Ltd and MEPC to construct the highly anticipated metrology facility located within the Innovation Centre on Silverstone Park in Northampton.

Hexagon is a ‘global leader in digital solutions, combining sensor, software and autonomous technologies’ and has approximately 23,000 employees across 50 countries. The company enables manufacturers to ‘access, analyse and actively leverage data form all key stages of the manufacturing process to empower better decision-making’.

The catalyst for the project was to create a metrology facility that would be accessible to the advanced manufacturing centre based on Silverstone Park and the wider area, enabling them to inspect, validate and quality control components and prototypes. The facility aims to be particularly useful for both start-up businesses on the park and the plethora of automotive giants on the park including Formula 1 teams on site.


DSP carried out a variety of works including the construction of a precision inspection workshop with viewing gallery corridor, meeting rooms, customer lounge, common areas, and new tea point. Enabling works for the precision inspection workshop included the formation of a new double glazed external entrance with ramp to withstand heavy machinery, removal of computer floor and installation of resin floor finish, as well as raising ceiling levels in areas for machinery. Works also included additional services and alterations to services such as airlines, power, data, lighting, fire detection, air conditioning and wet heating system.

Key features of the project included:

  • The design and fit-out of new Metrology Facility including ancillary spaces within the Innovation Centre on Silverstone Park.
