The Silverstone Experience wins at Constructing Excellence Awards

We are pleased to announce that the Silverstone Experience has won the Conservation & Regeneration Award at the Constructing Excellence East Midlands Awards and will now progress to the National finals set to take place in January 2021.

MAC Construction Consultants were honoured to be appointed as Cost Consultant, Project Manager and Contract Administrator on this truly amazing attraction, located in Silverstone, Northamptonshire, in April 2017.

This immersive and interactive attraction, which showcases the best of British motorsport and the history of Silverstone, was launched by HRH Prince Harry and Lewis Hamilton MBE last year.

This was a very challenging (but ultimately a very rewarding) project which MAC assisted the Client, Silverstone Heritage Ltd, in taking from early stage design through to completion.

Working very closely with a wonderful Client and project team, MAC had to manage some major challenges through this scheme, none more so than a Principal Contractor entering administration mid-project, before the Silverstone Experience opened its doors to the public in October 2019.

Senior Project Manager at MAC, Lee Butler, commented: “It was a great pleasure to work on the Silverstone Experience and we are delighted that this project has won this Conservation & Regeneration Award, which it richly deserves, particularly in saving one of the last few T2-type aircraft hangers left in the country.

“We’re now looking forward to the National finals which take place in January 2021 and we all hope that this wonderful & inspirational project takes home the big prize.

“It was a huge honour for MAC to be appointed on such a unique and fascinating development and we are thrilled that the hard work of the whole project team is being rewarded.”
