Major Sports Car Manufacturer, Silverstone

PBA, now part of Stantec was appointed to help a major sports car manufacturer, deliver a world-class extension to their site.

Working with Apex Circuit Design, PBA provided a full engineering design service on this project, designed to give drivers of sports cars a world class experience. This included detailed layout and drainage design, full safety installations, pavement design, and earthworks design on a site that had previously been used as a spoil dump. PBA worked with the contractor to ensure that the proposed temporary works solutions were not in conflict with the permanent works.

By providing a full engineering design service, PBA helped to deliver this project within a very challenging timeframe and to budget, allowing opening of the facility ahead of the Formula 1 GP and associated events at the grand prix to take place. PBA even worked with HeliAir operators of the temporary heliport during the F1 GP to allow heliport operations to be accommodated on site during the event.
