European Visitor Centre, Caterpillar



The unveling of the European visitor centre for leading construction vehicle maker Caterpillar has been welcomed as an important investment by its Managing Director.

Linked to the company’s factory in Desford, near Leicester, the new centre is literally a ‘room with a view’.


  • Glass fronted, two-storey building.
  • Constructed from steel portal frame under an external shell of curtain walling and cladding.
  • Roof has single radius mill finish aluminium standing seam sheet system.
  • The building looks out over a demonstration area so visitors can watch equipment displays in comfort.
  • Inside are a showroom, several conference rooms, and a gift shop allied to the Caterpillar brand. It also connects with the existing assembly plant so visitors can be taken on tours.
