Buckingham Group Contracting was responsible for the construction of The Silverstone Wing, the current Formula One pit complex and international media centre at the Silverstone motor racing circuit, located next door to the company’s headquarters in Stowe, Buckinghamshire. The project incorporates the podium on which Britain’s Lewis Hamilton took the top step on 10 July last year as well as in 2014 and 2015. “We have a long-standing relationship with Silverstone circuit,” says chairman of both Buckingham Plant and Buckingham Group Contracting, Paul Wheeler. “The Silverstone Wing project ideally highlights the success of Buckingham Group Contracting.”
