Working with Aston Martin F1 to provide a sustainable and circular disposal channel for FF&E as they relocate to a new multi-million-pound headquarters.
Aston Martin was finalising the plans for relocating to their new £200 million headquarters, housing all aspects of car design, R&D, car building, and testing.
The existing and iconic ‘Jordan Factory’ needed to be demolished to make way for the new facility. Sitting opposite the legendary Silverstone track, first built by team boss Eddie Jordan in 1991, the racing team has used the building ever since through its various incarnations and, most recently, Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One.
NCM Auctions provided Aston Martin with a sustainable and circular disposal channel – clearing the entire factory of all surplus assets, including furniture, fixtures and fittings, office and IT equipment, tools and machinery, before demolition.
The two-phase project included a private staff-only auction and an exclusive public online auction.
While often neglected in large-scale relocations, Aston Martin’s approach helped extend the lifecycle of their surplus equipment and facilitated plenty of positive stories for Aston Martin F1.
The entire building was cleared of all fixtures and fittings before demolition. Rather than going to landfill, the wide range of equipment and assets found new homes with industry professionals, many different businesses and avid Formula One fans who were lucky enough to win a piece of racing history.
