To create one of the foremost Advanced Product Creation Centres in the world, with the largest engineered timber roof in the UK, reflecting the design quality and company values associated with one of Britain's most iconic automotive businesses.

Speed and ease of construction were the driving forces behind this project, without compromising the quality of design and materials.
