Leeds construction firm bags contract for new Jaguar Land Rover site in Newcastle
Leeds-based APP Construction has secured a contract to build a new multi-million pound Stratstone Jaguar Land Rover dealership in North Tyneside for Pendragon PLC.
The contract win is another project for Stratstone owner Pendragon, one of the world’s biggest automotive retailers, following the success of APP Construction’s JLR scheme in Cardiff.
Work has started on the 15,000 sq m site on the UK’s largest office park, Cobalt Park which is home to over 14,000 people working for leading companies including Aston Martin, Infiniti, Accenture, Siemens and Santander.
The 26-week project will create a number of local jobs and a state-of-the-art showroom and service centre for two of the motor industry’s leading marques.
APP Construction’s John White said: “We are delighted to once again be working for Pendragon to create a truly eye-catching dealership in one of the North’s most prestigious locations.”
The project team also includes architect Unwin Jones Partnership, structural engineer Fairhurst and PQS DRC Consulting.
