0

JLR has begun construction work on a £200m (US$244m) redevelopment of its design and engineering center in Gaydon, UK. The auto maker worked with architectural practice Bennetts Associates to design the facility and chose Laing O’Rourke as its construction partner. Laing O’Rourke will develop the site to create a unique landscaped campus comprising new offices and design centers.

Chris Elliott, property program director for JLR, said, “The new design and engineering center 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 centralize our design, product engineering and purchasing functions in an original and modern environment, as well as creating additional capacity for the future.”
