• Client: Morgan Motor Company
  • Location: Malvern
  • Project: Visitor Centre Refurbishment
  • Value: £1.8m
  • Duration: 26 Weeks
  • Description:

Working closely with Hewitt Studios, the architects on the project, and a great team of subcontractors, we delivered a scheme that is innovative and, in line with Morgan’s philosophy, has a strong focus on sustainability.  The specification included a series of features designed to improve energy efficiency, increase natural daylight, reduce surface water run-off and provide for end-of-life recycling of materials.

The project was hindered by localised flooding and then lockdown led to a period of site shutdown and supply chain challenges.

The end result is a stunning transformation of the site. A transformation that is both sympathetic to Morgan’s heritage and one that is sure to play a huge part in its exciting future.


Steve Morris, Chairman & CEO, Morgan Motor Company:

“The new Morgan Experience Centre, opened in September 2020, has transformed the visitor experience here at Pickersleigh Road, the historic home of the Morgan Motor Company since 1914. We would like to thank HB Projects for their work to undertake a challenging project working with an existing building, and for helping to deliver such a quality end result. Working alongside Hewitt Studios and a number of local contractors, HB Projects have transformed an aging facility into a fully functioning visitor attraction, complete with all-new showroom, restaurant, office space, and exterior. The team worked against the challenging conditions of a global pandemic to produce something we are all immensely proud of, and a space that we look forward to utilising once restrictions have fully lifted.”

Bob Horner, Site Manager, HB Projects

“The job has been one of, if not, the most challenging for me as a site manager, but it does look fantastic. It is amazing to think that, when restrictions are lifted, Morgan will be expecting over 30,000 visitors a year.  I’m very proud of what the team has delivered”. 

Steve Thompson, Account Manager, HB Projects:

“This was a fantastic project delivered to a high specification and standards. The delivery team worked tirelessly to incorporate changes and additional works. Working with different specifications and materials has had it challenges but the final outcome is something to be very proud of.”
