GORDON’S DESIGN HOUSE GAINS NEW DIGS
High-end supercars require a state-of-the-art facility to build them. And that’s exactly what the Gordon Murray Group is doing with its 12,000 square metre foot development on a 22 hectare site in Surrey.
Branded a technology campus, the all-new headquarters at Windlesham is slated to be complete in three phases, with the finishing touches added by the end of 2024, costing an estimated AUD$93m in the process.
Given design is a key consideration for Murray, the new project will be ‘sympathetically integrated’ into the historic site, with the Surrey Heath Borough Council advising. Gas giant BOC once occupied the location, with the distinctive atom-shaped building to be preserved.
Inside the building it’ll be clean enough to eat off the floor (don’t actually do that), with a ‘revolutionary layout’ for the design and prototyping area of the main engineering facility, one that promises an ultra-efficient, worldclass vehicle development process to boot.
Design teams will sit adjacent to their individual build bays housing the actual concept they’re working on with common areas for brainstorming ideas between crews.
Within the next three years the project is expected to create more than 100 highly skilled jobs.
The Gordon Murray Group will maintain its existing facilities, with the Dunsfold Park site tasked with housing the production of the T.50 hypercar.
