The McLaren Production Center is located in Woking, Surrey, UK; it was built by Foster + Partners. The 34,500 square meter facility is where all of the McLaren cars are built. The most recently released high-performance car, the MP4-12C is also being assembled here.
The facility is set up for a flexible production. The arrangement of the two-story structure mirrors the flow of the production line: components are delivered; the cars are assembled, painted and tested, and then pass through a rolling road and car wash before leaving the building.
Beneath this floor is a full basement level for storage and plant, and above is a mezzanine floor with views over the production line. Every stage of production takes place under the same roof. Initially it takes 10 days for an MP4-12C to be assembled. During peak production it will be possible to build one of the cars in five days. A new car will join the line every 45 minutes. I had no idea that so many of these cars were sold!
