Morgan Motor Company
Visitor Centre Refurbishment
Work closely with architects at Hewitt Studios to deliver an innovative new visitor centre for Morgan Motor Company that's sympathetic to the company's heritage and one that is sure to play a huge part in its exciting future.

The end result of our Morgan Motor Company refurbishment is a stunning total transformation of the site - a transformation that is sympathetic to Morgan’s heritage, yet still incorporates modern, contemporary features. The project was hindered by localised flooding and the COVID pandemic, which led to a period of site shutdown and presented several supply chain challenges, however, we believe the final outcome is something to be very proud of.
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. We would like to thank HB Projects for their work. They undertook a challenging project and delivered a quality end result. Working alongside Hewitt Studios and a number of local contractors, HB Projects have transformed an ageing 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 Morgan Motor Company project has been one of, if not, the most challenging for me as a Site Manager, but the end product looks 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 have delivered."
Steve Thompson, Account Manager, HB Projects
"The Morgan project was a fantastic project to be part of. We delivered the work to a really high standard. The delivery team worked tirelessly to incorporate changes and additional works during a challenging time. Working with different specifications and materials has had its challenges but the final outcome is something to be very proud of."
