Project: Phase 1 RAF St Athan Conversion
Location: St Athan, Wales
Client: Aston Martin Lagonda
This project was a critical step for TC Consult client, Aston Martin, in delivering it’s new car, DBX, which will be built in the new facility. The opening of St Athan played a hugely important milestone in the company’s growth plan and is integral to its ambitions as a global luxury brand.
The phase 1 project comprised office refurbishment, structural and envelope alterations, provision of a VIP area to house vehicles, a restaurant and extensive remodelling of the external hard & soft landscaping.
Phase 2 of the project was a refurbishment and fit out of an existing aircraft hangar to create the production line for the prestigious new DBX model of Aston Martin. TC Consult was appointed to provide project & cost management support during the early stages of project development & procurement, and Employer’s Agent role on the Design & Build Construction Contracts.
On opening the new factory First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford said: “Today is a proud moment for Aston Martin, the Welsh Government and for Wales.
“Locating this world class and globally recognised brand in St Athan is a huge vote of confidence in the Welsh workforce. It is an example of the Welsh Government’s support and can-do attitude driving economic growth and creating jobs.
“I look forward to the first made-in-Wales Aston Martins rolling off the production line.”
