McLaren Applied Technology Centre[edit]

On 16 September 2011, McLaren Group unveiled plans to build a McLaren Applied Technology Centre adjacent to its existing headquarters. The new building will consist of 60,000 square metres (650,000 sq ft) of workshops, prototype manufacturing and testing space, research and development equipment, offices, meeting spaces, innovation hubs and informal break-out spaces. Plans include 300 jobs during construction and 400 permanent jobs once the site has been built. McLaren also claims that an additional 200 jobs will be created indirectly through manufacturing, suppliers and clients, and increased retail spending in the area.[2]
