Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant had a 750 square metre building installed after a 400 square metre facility was installed at its Coventry plant.

Case Study

About this job
Jaguar Land Rover has expanded some of its manufacturing sites in areas such as Solihull and Coventry. This has created a knock on effect for Gestamp, an international group dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of metal automotive components, that works closely with Jaguar Land Rover.

The group owns nearly 100 production facilities on four continents and offers customers comprehensive solutions that cover the entire production process, from product concept to delivery at their assembly lines.

Requirement
Both companies required temporary structures of a considerable size and specification in order to store a high number of specific products that needed to be kept in a controlled environment.

Building
Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull plant had a 750 square metre building installed after a 400 square metre facility was installed at its Coventry plant.

A similar building to Jaguar Land Rover’s was installed at Gestamp’s Llanelli and Washington sites for storage.

At 1,250 square metres, the Llanelli building is split into three parts with 200 square metre canopies at either end. These are used for loading and unloading the panels to aid the production process.

Gestamp Washington has added 1150 square metres for parts storage and dispatch. Gestamp’s Cannock 600 square metre site is also being used for storage but for more general parts.

Challenges
The Solihull building is being used to store vehicle panels that are in the pre-paint stage of production and has been specially insulated to ensure condensation is kept to the very minimum so the panels do not get damp.

The temporary building also features a high-speed shutter door that allows quick and easy access without letting the elements affect the parts.

The height of the building, standing at six metres to the eave, allows the panels to be stacked to a high level to make the absolute most of the space.
