Shaylor wins £15m Silverstone motor racing museum

10 November 2017

The West Midlands-based company Shaylor has taken the chequered flag in the race to build a motor racing museum at Silverstone in Northampton.

Its £15.5m bid beat off four rivals to the prized job at the racing circuit.

The conversion of the Formula 1 British home goes with great thanks to a received lottery grant to fund the conversion of a former World War II hangar on the former aerodrome site.

Up to 50,000 motor racing enthusiasts a year are expected to visit the Silverstone Heritage Museum, which will display dozens of Formula 1 and other racing cars and bikes along with personal items from famous drivers.

The shell and core and base build contract includes refurbishment and recladding the existing hangar with a new large extension and associated external works.

The project architect, heading up the building services team, is Jane Lock-Smith of Cube Design.
