In August 2015 Apex were contracted by Danrick Builders to contribute toward the development of a Master plan for their site in Casa Grande, Arizona. The bespoke master plan support service tailored by Apex required the design team to integrate with locally appointed planning consultants to create a Master Plan for the site, to explore effective adjacencies of the facilities and to identify any commercial development opportunities.
During this process Apex were responsible for the automotive facilities only and their associated buildings. The result of this Master planning exercise is a regional employment core, with motorsports and event facilities anchoring a supporting community of research, development, training and high-tech manufacturing firms.
Key to the vision are the motorsports facilities, that feature a public road circuit, a karting facility, a private circuit (similar to a golf club type facility) and a brand centre featuring training and demonstration services combined with product information and sales. To support this core, a hotel and conference center, grand plaza, and related entertainment space is planned to provide food, amusement, and accommodations for visitors.
