The challenge

Just like the award-winning McLaren Technology Centre, the MPC has been carefully designed by Foster + Partners to fit perfectly into its environment to be as efficient and environmentally sensitive as possible. Its design develops themes found in some of the practice’s earliest industrial buildings for Reliance Controls and Renault and will showcase McLaren’s technology with a flexible, light and uplifting workplace, more akin to an operating theatre than a factory.

The solution and approach

Bailey Bullnose fascia/soffit secret fix cassette system has the quality of engineering required of this prestige manufacturing plant providing no visible fixings and a profile that is smooth and rigid. The eaves are one of the key features of the architecture of the building, it provides the important line that heads the elevation, helping to bring together many visual elements and forming the junction between walls and roof. Significantly, the eaves with their projecting profile also act as protection and shading of the walls, windows and doors underneath.
