O’Brien Contractors was congratulated alongside teams that delivered the Module 4 Engine Manufacturing Centre completion.

The completion of these works is a significant milestone in the development of Jaguar Landrover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre. As part of a £450 million expansion,  the project has doubled the size of its Engine Manufacturing Centre, and raised the total investment to £1 billion, making it the most significant new automotive manufacturing facility to be built in the UK in the last decade.

Stuart Chamberlain, O’Brien Contractors Director, said: “We are delighted to receive positive feedback on such a prestigious project for JLR and look forward to working with them again on further projects.”

Stace’s, Adrian Murray, Associate Project Manager, said: I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate everyone involved for all their hard work and dedication over the last two years; from moving 210,000m³ of earth to turn disused playing fields into a level building plateau while providing safe habitat zones for protected bird species and seeing them lay eggs, then constructing an 11m-high, 85,0000m2 building almost doubling the size of the existing facility in a challenging timeframe with a very collaborative approach sensitive to the needs of JLR and its process equipment fit-out.

You and your teams have each and all delivered to JLR a fantastic building for fit-out of its process equipment and ultimately production of state-of-the-art engines. I’m sure you are all as equally proud as I am to have been involved in and contributed to this prestigious project for JLR. We wish JLR all the best with the continuing fit-out of process equipment and JLR’s ongoing success as a whole, looking forward to the award winning facility producing state-of-the-art engines for many years to come.”
