HGP, alongside the project team, are delighted that the Land Rover BAR Americas Cup HQ and Facilities Building has been awarded 'BIM Project of the Year', at the Constructing Excellence London & South East Awards 2016.
Home of Land Rover BAR Racing, and built to BREEAM excellent standards, this purpose-built facility comprises 6,874sqm of multi functioning space that brings together three key functions of boat design, boat building and racing team training; the Education Centre sits alongside and the whole project is a showcase for the collaboration of sport, innovation and sustainability. Situated on the peninsula of the Camber in the conservation area of Old Portsmouth, these headquarters are integral to Ben Ainslie and Land Rover BAR Racing. The Team has been brought together from a fragmented set of facilities to train in a single location – a really positive influence in their quest to bring the Cup home to Britain.
The project has also been shortlisted for the National Constructing Excellence Awards to be held in November.
