McLaren lands £14m aerospace contract

McLaren Construction has been awarded a £14 million contract to develop a research and development facility for aerospace group Moog.

Birmingham-based developer Stoford has appointed the firm to deliver the first phase of a new 250,000 sq ft research and development facility for Moog on Wolverhampton’s i54 Business Park.

Construction is set to commence this month on the first phase of the scheme which will incorporate a 190,000 sq ft construction programme, expected to be completed by November 2011.   

McLaren director David Wheeler said: “We are delighted to be working again with Stoford.

“This is a great award for the McLaren Group, as it complements the continued growth of the McLaren Group in the West Midlands”.  

Stoford director, Dan Gallagher added: “This is a significant milestone in a project that will give a great boost to the regeneration of the Black Country.” 

Moog is relocating its flight controls operation from its existing base in Wobaston Road by September 2012 in a move that will maintain around 400 jobs. The project has been supported by Wolverhampton City Council, Advantage West Midlands and Fusion Building Consultancy.
