RIBA Award Wins for Jaguar Land Rover Engine Manufacturing Centre

16 May 2017

Following awards from the RICS and CIBSE, Jaguar Land Rover has achieved further success for its Engine Manufacturing Centre.

This month the project has won two categories in the RIBA West Midlands Regional Awards 2017: The RIBA West Midlands Regional Award 2017 and RIBA West Midlands Sustainability Award 2017.

The Wolverhampton based facility (which currently employs circa 1,400 staff) was completed in two phases: Phase 1 of 700,000 ft² was completed in October 2013 and Phase 2 of 250,000 ft² was completed in October 2014.

The centre is made up of three large open plan process halls, including a machine hall (equivalent in size to 6 football pitches) for the machining of engine parts and two separate assembly halls. The project boasts one of the largest photovoltaic installations in the UK and the exemplary ancillary support buildings offer a wide variety of staff facilities, including, offices, training rooms, restaurants and a dedicated education business partnership centre.

Stace provided a full suite of services in the form of development consultancy (including technical due diligence in land acquisition, representation with local stakeholders and acquiring all necessary strategic development consents): Project Management, Client Representative and Employer’s Agent services.

Congratulations to Arup and the rest of the project team.
