LandRover BAR, The Camber East Street, Portsmouth 

To win his five Olympic golds, yachtsman Ben Ainslie would have had to draw on all his reserves of endeavour, passion, excellence and determination. All skills which he will call upon if he is to do the seemingly impossible and bring the America's Cup to Britain for the first time in the competition's history.

So the renowned perfectionist will no doubt be pleased that those attributes have been applied to delivering LandRover BAR’s base to challenge for the cup in June 2017. 

Just like the crew on a boat, the project team worked collaboratively and harmoniously to meet the clients brief and produce a fantastic facility. Initially speed was of the essence, as the location had to be provided to bring the fragmented members of the team together under one roof and be fully operational as quickly as possible.

 The team progressed at a rate of knots, moving from planning to the handing over of the keys in just 12 months. A fully integrated BIM process helped ensure this speed of construction and delivery of this highly sustainable and energy efficient building.

The facility offers open plan communal office space, a gym, development and assembly space for the boats, Formula 1 inspired mission rooms and entertainment space for sponsors, visitors and hosts alike.

The visitor centre at the heart of the base showcases the sport, innovation, technology and sustainability of the building itself and the nautical craft. Visitors can experience the construction and on-going operation of the America’s Cup boats first-hand.

The project has the potential to bring significant economic and sporting benefits to the wider Solent area and the UK as a whole. A similar project for Team New Zealand estimated that its base in Auckland created 1,000 jobs and brought an $88million boost to the local economy.

This is a very impressive project. Overall the racing team's headquarters provides all that is necessary to help bring the Cup to Britain. The intelligent, ergonomic and economic design, the combination of multiple uses in such a unique way, its sustainably and the speed of delivery, make this centre of marine and maritime excellence a worthy Innovation winner.
