Laing O’Rourke breaks ground on £200m Jaguar Land Rover campus
Laing O’Rourke has been contracted by Jaguar Land Rover for a £200m construction project at its Gaydon site in Warwickshire.
Jaguar Land Rover is developing a new campus for engineering design centres for both Jaguar and Land Rover car marques. Work has now started on site.
The expansion represents the first major construction project at one of the company’s non-manufacturing sites in over a decade.
Chris Elliott, property programmes director for Jaguar Land Rover, said: “The new design and engineering centre is a testament both to Jaguar Land Rover's British heritage of innovation and its compelling vision for future vehicle technology. The new space will centralise our design, product engineering and purchasing functions in an original and modern environment, as well as creating additional capacity for the future.”
Jaguar Land Rover worked with architectural practice Bennetts Associates to design the scheme and has engaged Laing O’Rourke as its construction partner. Laing O’Rourke will develop the site to create a landscaped campus comprising new offices and Jaguar and Land Rover design centres.
