Posted on by in News

nFormulaEMar14A number of steel framed buildings have been erected at Donington Park as the headquarters for Formula E, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile’s new electrical racing series.

Steelwork contractor Caunton Engineering has fabricated, supplied and erected six single span portal frame structures measuring 42m × 15m. The buildings are to be divided in half with internal partitions to form workshops for the Formula E teams.

A further two similar sized steel structures have also been built, one to be divided into a workshop and offices for Formula E, the other to be used as an administrative headquarters by Donington Park Racing.

All of the facilities will meet the ‘Very Good’ Breeam rating and in total 250t of steelwork was required.

Main contractor is Vinci Construction UK which is scheduled to complete the project by the end of April with the first teams moving in on 1 May.
