McLaren Production Centre
McLAREN GROUP OFFICIALLY UNVEILS
BRAND NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART PRODUCTION FACILITY
Woking, UK, Thursday Nov 17 2011
Today’s official unveiling of the brand new McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England, could not have been made possible without the involvement and partnership of Pastorelli. The McLaren Production Centre, which was opened by Prime Minister UK David Cameron this morning, will be the new state-of-the-art home of McLaren Automotive. The new building shares the same genesis as the neighbouring McLaren Technology Centre: it was designed by award-winning architects Foster + Partners in conjunction with McLaren. It will house the assembly facility for all future McLaren Automotive projects, including the MP4-12C high-performance sports car. McLaren Group chairman Ron Dennis said: “During the entire design and build phases of the McLaren Production Centre, we were acutely aware of the need to create a space to complement the existing structure of the McLaren Technology Centre.
“Finding a solution that could function within the existing landscape was particularly challenging, but I’m pleased to say that Foster + Partners ensured a seamless continuity between the two buildings, while also allowing the MPC to exist independently as its own unique space.
“It is a legacy of our partners’ commitment, passion and adaptability that we were able to commute this shared vision into such a striking, unified and functional piece of design and architecture. The efforts of Pastorelli have been essential in bringing such a lengthy design and build process to a hugely satisfying conclusion.”
