O’Brien bags £5.25m Jaguar civils deals
Civils and groundworks specialist O’Brien Contractors Limited has picked up a pair of deals worth £5.25m on sites for luxury car maker Jaguar.
O’Brien will start next month on Jaguar Land Rover’s i54 Engine Manufacturing Facility in Wolverhampton and its Advanced Engineering and Design Centre in Whitley, Coventry.
The two developments are part of a wider drive by Jaguar to invest over £600m across its Midlands operations.
O’Brien will provide bulk earthworks and soil stabilisation services at the i54 Engine Manufacturing facility in Wolverhampton.
Works will include “cutting and filling” of 140,000m3 of site won material to form a plateau level for a proposed new build development to extend the existing engine manufacturing plant.
O’Brien will also deliver infrastructure services at the Advanced Design and Engineering Centre in Whitley, Coventry – including the construction of two car parking facilities amounting to 1000 spaces.
Stuart Chamberlain, Director, O’Brien Contractors, said: “Jaguar Land Rover is one of the most successful Global businesses in the region and we are delighted to be chosen to deliver bulk earthworks, soil stabilisation and infrastructure works at two significant manufacturing and engineering facilities.
“In recent times we have successfully completed £6m-worth of work for Jaguar Land Rover at sites in Coventry, Gaydon, Birmingham and Solihull.
‘The new contract wins are further evidence of our on-going commitment to using innovative new technologies allowing us to continually improve the quality of our work and the speed of installation, saving Jaguar Land Rover both time and money.”
