London Taxi Co. Production Facility
Continuing our on-going relationship with Winvic Construction, Speedclad delivered a quality design, supply and installation curtain walling and glazing package on this flagship new facility in Coventry, for the company that produces the iconic black cab.
This new £250 million facility, on Ansty Business Park, provides the London Taxi Corporation with 20,000m2 of production space, plus 4,500m2 of offices over 3 floors and will produce the next generation of ultra-low emission taxi cabs. The scheme represents the first car production facility built in the UK for more than 15 years and will have the capacity to assemble 36,000 vehicles a year. Speedclad's contract included works to the impressive production hall, as well as the metrology lab and welfare offices.
The flagship nature of the scheme, it's significance to the automotive industry in the UK and its prestige for London Taxi Corporation, ensured that the finished product had to be of the highest quality and seamlessly coordinated. Speedclad managed its works across this vast site with a consistent and collaborative approach to deliver an exemplary finished glazed facade that also met requirements for cost and programme.
