On Track to Open in Spring 2019

14th December 2017

The Silverstone Experience will be based in the last remaining Second World War hangar at the entrance to Silverstone Circuit. An extension will be added and the hangar refurbished to create a fantastic back drop for the exhibition.

The exhibition has being designed by sector specialists Mather and Co whose previous projects include the National Football Museum, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum, The Springbok Experience, The Olympic Museum, Chelsea FC Museum and the Warwickshire County Cricket Museum. The Project Architect, heading up the building services team, is Jane Lock-Smith of Cube Design who was awarded Architect of the year at the Women in Construction Awards 2016.  MAC Construction Consulting are Project Managers and Cost Consultants.

The Principle Contractor is currently being procured on the open market via an OJEU (The Official Journal of the European Union) procurement process and the successful tenderer will be announced in early 2018, with work due to start on site shortly afterwards.

The exhibition installation is due to start in the summer of 2018 once the building is watertight. The exhibition drawing package and specifications will shortly be finalised and tender information will be published via an OJEU procurement process.
