Laing O'Rourke wins £200m Jaguar Land Rover deal

Laing O’Rourke has secured a £200m scheme to redevelop Jaguar Land Rover’s design and engineering centre in Warwickshire.

The contractor will create office and design space within a major extension of the car giant’s existing Gaydon facility.

The expansion, designed by architects Bennetts Associates, represents the first major construction project at one of the company’s non-manufacturing sites in over a decade.

Jaguar Land Rover property programmes director Chris Elliott said: “The new space will centralise our design, product engineering and purchasing functions in an original and modern environment, as well as creating additional capacity for the future.”

In an exclusive interview with Construction News last week, Laing O’Rourke founder and chief executive Ray O’Rourke revealed he plans to step down from the business in three years’ time.

The company revealed this week that it was in talks to sell its Bison factory in Scotland to concrete specialist FP McCann.
