Grand designs at DAF’s new HQ22 November 2018

A training school, contemporary auditorium and entrance atrium were all on the list for DAF Trucks, when it gave a team of designers the brief for its new UK headquarters.

The £20m facility, which opened recently (see link below), is located in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. The 50,000sq ft building includes a grand entrance atrium designed to accommodate a DAF tractor.

Office design and build company Oktra worked with Maze Workplace on the internal works and construction phases, with Francis Hunter overseeing the project management of the development.

Internally, the space is a mix of private offices and open plan sit-stand work stations, and houses a four-bay workshop offering best-in-class training facilities for employees and DAF UK dealers.

David Bishop, senior designer at Oktra, said: “We worked alongside Maze Workplace to develop the design, covering various complex areas throughout the scheme. From a technical perspective, this project required detailed coordination and diligence to realise the design brief.”
