Innovation drives success of Jaguar Land Rover engine plant project

Interserve used cutting edge Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology to design and build Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) new Engine Manufacturing Centre near Wolverhampton, which was handed over earlier this year.

The 100,000 square metre facility is comprised of two main production halls - a machine hall and a diesel engine assembly hall – as well as offices, product measurement, testing and logistics areas, car parking and landscaping.

Interserve used BIM as part of the consultation and co-ordination process with JLR on the plant. BIM is a collaborative process designed to improve the quality and sustainability of buildings, while eliminating much of the waste inherited in the traditional design-build processes. It also creates a shared knowledge resource that integrates a virtual representation of the building.

Interserve gained JLR’s input early in the design stage to avoid long lead-in times and to fast-track the packaging of the structural steel, cladding and building services. This procurement approach helped keep works within schedule on what was a very fast-moving build.

Interserve was also required to incorporate a 7,000 square metre capacity increase partway through the construction period whilst still maintaining all of JLR’s process installation and machine delivery dates to maintain its engine production programme. This required Interserve, JLR and a range of contractors to work seamlessly and collaboratively together to ensure that everyone delivered without compromising one another’s work.
