47 Air Despatch Squadron, Brize Norton

This storage and distribution building was needed because of the planned closure of RAF Lyneham and the transfer of 47 Air Despatch Squadron to Brize Norton. The facility comprises large high-bay load preparation area with full 15 tonne travelling crane coverage, together with offices, stores, lockers and training facilities. The site includes provision for staff and ‘green fleet’ parking and circulation areas for transfer vehicles.

The site is ‘air side’ on a working military aerodrome so both design and construction involved considerable collaboration with the RAF.
