The Gordon Murray Group has revealed plans for a new global headquarters in Windlesham, Surrey, in the UK. The technology campus will be built on a 54-acre site providing facilities for automotive design, engineering, advanced vehicle development and manufacturing.
Gordon Murray, chairman, Gordon Murray Group, said, “This new technology campus and global headquarters is a major investment and a huge step forward for the Gordon Murray Group, as we gather momentum for the next phase of our business and our brands, spearheaded by the all-new T.50 supercar.
“Our innovative new technology campus is a fantastic new home and will give us world-class facilities that have been designed with a lot of attention to communication, workflow and social interaction – which will bring new levels of productivity to our already very efficient team.
The new headquarters will incorporate what GMG claims is a revolutionary layout in the design and prototyping area of the main engineering facility, which it says will deliver a more efficient vehicle development process.
Individual build bays for prototype vehicles will be sited adjacent to their respective design team with common access areas to ensure engineering teams communicate and work together efficiently. Elsewhere on the campus, a dedicated R&D structure will continue to advance the group’s automotive engineering and materials research efforts.
In addition to the new Windlesham facility, the Gordon Murray Group will retain its existing facilities. The site at Dunsfold Park, Surrey, will be used to manufacture the T.50 supercar and T.50s track-focused version, as well as continuing research and development in Murray’s iStream manufacturing system.
