Global automotive manufacturers and their suppliers live in a dynamic world. Innovation in technology and manufacturing can make existing facilities obsolete. Buyer demand can shift production to new continents. Competitive challenges can call for sales, manufacturing and testing locations.

Atwell’s Detroit roots, industry specialists, international reach and flexible structure make us a leading partner in this fast-evolving marketplace. In actively supporting the real estate efforts of automotive organizations, we often also consult on the redevelopment of existing real estate – for sale, for repurposing or for development into another profitable use.

Proving Grounds

In addition to the work Atwell performs for automotive manufacturing and dealership environments, we offer a team of proving ground specialists, working internationally to deliver dynamic and consistent test environments for manufacturers and top suppliers.

Taking part in engineering some of the most durable, precise and award-winning projects in the world, Atwell applies creative planning, flexible delivery and technical expertise in developing efficient and cost-effective solutions for automotive proving grounds and testing facility challenges.

Working with clients across the globe, we are sensitive to corporate policies, security and budgetary issues. We understand vehicle testing needs and the distinctive concerns of proving grounds, such as event layout efficiencies, security, unique construction materials and processes, and safety needs.
