McLaren Construction has been awarded the contract to build the new 323,000 sq ft technology and logistics centre for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Construction of the facility at Oldlands Farm Business Park on the northern edge of Bognor Regis is due to take 48 weeks. The site is close to the Rolls-Royce factory at Goodwood.
The facility will be part of the ‘Enterprise Bognor Regis’ initiative, which looks to develop the town and the surrounding area as a new premier business location in West Sussex. Rolls-Royce will be the first business to hop on-board for the programme when the centre opens in 2016.
McLaren was chosen by property developer Bericote Properties. Lee Pettit of Bericote Properties said, “We are pleased to be working again with McLaren Construction who have successfully delivered major projects for Bericote throughout our long-standing relationship and we look forward to the new Technology and Logistics Centre for Rolls-Royce to be completed to the same industry-leading standards.”
David Murphy, regional managing director (South) at McLaren Construction said: “We look forward to furthering our track record in the automotive sector and bringing our expertise to bear on the delivery of what will be a high profile facility for Rolls-Royce and a prominent development in the context of the ‘Enterprise Bognor Regis’ plan.”
