MoD will close the existing RAF base at the end of this year and the plan is to convert the site into a major engineering training campus to develop skills in maintaining military equipment.
The £230m project will involve demolition of existing building, essential infrastructure work, new buildings as well as refurbishment of existing facilities.
Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s current construction programme shows site mobilisation and enabling works in early 2014. New build and refurbishment of existing buildings will start in spring 2014 and complete in winter 2015.
Three firms are to be invited to submit detailed bids with the successful contractor taking sole responsibility for delivery of the project, which has been supported by Amec as technical advisers.
Interested firms have until 4 January to obtain documents. For more information contact Sharon Richardson, tel: 01264381441 or email: DIOOpsSouth-DTTCPCommercial@mod.uk
