The ambition for the Jaguar Land Rover scheme was to create one of the foremost Advanced Product Creation Centres in the world using innovative offsite construction techniques. The new building reflects the design quality and company values associated with one of the UK's most iconic automotive businesses.
Jaguar Land Rover's own sustainability and wellbeing strategy shaped the building philosophy together with the desire to create a defining roof structure from offsite manufactured timber technology that reflects the pioneering work taking place within. A diverse range of spaces has been brought together under one of Europe's largest engineered timber roofs designed, engineered and installed by B&K Structures - the UK's leading sustainable frame contractor. Encompassing 1,512m³ of glulam beams and 2,674m³ of cross laminated timber panels - the roof makes a vast design statement covering an area of 51,097m2(GIA).
Offsite manufactured cross laminated timber delivers maximum programme benefits, reduces capital and lifecycle costs, whilst minimising the impact on the environment. Engineered timber is now being used as a positive means of enhancing working environments.
