Background

Stace has played an integral part in the delivery of Norton Motorcycles’ new headquarters at Solar Park in Solihull. From the outset of the scheme the main drivers were speed in the delivery of the manufacturing hall to enable production to resume. Quality in the execution of the works with a keen attention to detail ensuring the facility reflects Norton’s principals surrounding quality in design, engineering, and production. Finally, as an overarching principal sustainability, focusing on the circular economy, careful material selection and ensuring a high future re-use factor looking at componentry and systems that would also give Norton flexibility.

Stace has been key to driving the delivery of this world class facility for Norton which will enable the next generation of Norton Motorcycles to be developed and built under their new owner’s TVS Motor Company.

We have provided facilities for circa 150 staff, space for manufacturing lines, engineering and product development, offices, design studios, support functions including for marketing and sales. The facility is based in the West Midlands, Solihull, creating hundreds of jobs at what is an incredibly challenging time economically.

Norton Motorcycles was founded in 1898 as a manufacturer of fittings and parts to the two-wheel trade and in in April 2020, was acquired by TVS Motor Company. Norton Motorcycles went on to become one of the most iconic British motorcycle brands, manufacturing famous models such as the 650SS, Atlas, Commando, Dominator, Manx, Navigator and more – constantly innovating in motorcycle technology, with features advantageous for lightness and strength in motorcycle racing. Norton Motorcycles has an unrivalled history in motorsport and the brand name is synonymous with Isle of Man TT racing.

Simon Prior, Partner said “It has been a pleasure working alongside the Norton team and delivering such a key project which will go on to be a significant milestone in Norton’s history. This project has epitomised a partnering approach between all parties, client, consultants, contractor, and the results speak for themselves. The Norton team’s passion for their industry, brand and what this new chapter means for the business was evident from the outset of the project and this had a hugely important and positive impact on the wider team. We wish Norton all the best for the future in their new home.”
