Oulton Park Race Circuit - Cheshire

This two-phase project included the construction of a pit complex and restaurant.

New garages, a control building, commentators' podium and the Chequers Restaurant were amongst the works carried out at this well known Cheshire race track.

The construction of the Chequered Flag restaurant incorporated a steel frame which allowed for the speed of construction and for one elevation to be fully glazed for viewing purposes. Internally the building included a fully equipped kitchen, large dining area, meeting rooms, executive toilets and further toilets for the paddock area. The overall result was a functional and economical building that was instantly popular with the users of the circuit. The project also included improvement to the infrastructure of the circuit by the design and installation of a complete sewage treatment plant, a new water main, electric sub stations and feeds, and the distribution of data and communications. 

The second phase involved the construction of the pit complex at Oulton Park with facilities including new garages, a control building over three floors and a commentator's podium. The work involved the demolition of the existing garages and design of the new pit complex within the closed season. Detailed pre-planning and a tight programme of works ensured that the development was completed on time. To counter a potential design difficulty, a change of level between each garage was incorporated within the concrete aprons both to the front and rear of the garages.
