Hitech GP is the home of an established Formula 3 motor racing team, with over 30 years of racing experience. They are one of the top teams in the British Touring Car Championship and were the 2013 Dunlop British Touring Car Champions.

What was the brief?

Hitech GP’s premises based at Silverstone, UK required some re-modelling to suit the needs of the growing business. They already had a mezzanine floor in situ which was open plan, but, the company needed to use the space, on the mezzanine and beneath it, in a better way to allow them to incorporate the following:

  • Machine workshop area
  • Stores area
  • Simulator room for the drivers
  • Control room and viewing window (into the simulator room)
  • Stairs

Cubex was recommended by one of our contractors, as Hitech GP had been unsuccessful in finding a company with the design flair and service we were able to offer.

What was the solution?

We carefully considered all the customer’s needs and put together a plan to utilise the existing available space in the best way possible.
Our approach included the design of partitioning in a non-standard black and installed to encase the stairs and create a storage corridor alongside the vehicle transporter area, so that the relevant kit for each car can easily be loaded prior to a race meeting. Finishing touches included the purchase of new furniture (from our catalogue and bespoke commissions) for the ground and first floor rooms/areas.

The project was completed over a period of 3 weeks. The team of contractors comprised of partition fitters, carpenters, electricians and furniture installers.
