McLaren Construction is to deliver a new Technology and Logistics Centre, located on the Oldlands Farm Business Park on the northern edge of Bognor Regis, for Bericote Properties on behalf of Rolls-Royce. The brand new 30,000m2 development is close to the car maker’s current home at Goodwood, West Sussex.

Construction of the facility began in September 2014 and is due to complete within a tight 48 week timeframe. The facility will be part of the ‘Enterprise Bognor Regis’ initiative, which looks to develop the town and the surrounding area as a new premier business location in West Sussex. Rolls-Royce will be the first business to hop on board for the program when the Centre opens in 2016.

This impressive win follows on from McLaren’s successful delivery of Jaguar Land Rover’s new manufacturing plant in Solihull.

David Murphy, Regional Managing Director (South), McLaren Construction, commented: “We are extremely proud to have been appointed as the main contractor to deliver this exciting new development for a loyal and respected customer such as Bericote.

“We look forward to furthering our track record in the automotive sector and bringing our expertise to bear on the delivery of what will be a high profile facility for Rolls-Royce and a prominent development in the context of the ‘Enterprise Bognor Regis’ plan.”

Lee Pettit, Bericote Properties, said: “We are pleased to be working again with McLaren Construction who have successfully delivered major projects for Bericote throughout our long-standing relationship and we look forward to the new Technology and Logistics Centre for Rolls-Royce to be completed to the same industry-leading standards.”
