Wirth Research, which designs the chassis for Virgin Racing, will not complete its relocation to a new factory until work on the 2011 VR-02 is complete.
The organization, run by Nick Wirth, is currently located in Bicester in Oxfordshire, but will start a phased move to the ex-ASCARI cars facility located 20 miles to the north-west in Banbury.
"It will be sometime early next year, probably after the F1 car is built," Wirth told AUTOSPORT when asked when the move would be completed. "The move starts in the August shutdown and will continue for several months to fit in with the build-up of next year's F1 car. People who have to stay will stay behind until the car is built and on its way.
"It's a phased process, but we're used to working all over the place so it's not really going to be much of a change."
Wirth is confident that the move from the current six-building setup to the new facility will be of huge benefit both to F1 and its other racing programs.
"In terms of our business both on the F1 side and on all the other projects, it represents a major step to get everyone into such a great facility that is still in motorsports valley.
"We're moving everything under one roof. It's sized and designed to take us to the next level of research and development and the next level of computing power. We literally can't fit any more computers into where we are now!"
