Offsite specialist, Caledonian, has commenced the manufacture of 319 modular Single Living Accommodation (SLA) units for Lossiemouth Royal Air Force base in Scotland.
Working with Robertson Construction, the build is part of a larger programme of works – the Lossiemouth Development Programme.
Caledonian secured the contract through an open market tender process. The company says that the new housing will exceed previous standards providing more spacious and better quality accommodation for RAF Lossiemouth personnel.
Split across 5 separate blocks, the project will provide en-suite rooms, social, communal, and ancillary space for Junior Ranks, SNCOs and Officers alike.
Caledonian modules will be supplied more than 90% complete, ensuring the client’s investment in an off-site solution provides maximum benefit by minimising the works required on site.
Caledonian has considerable experience working with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) having delivered over 14,000 bed spaces over the past 15 years.
The award of this contract continues to reinforce its presence in this sector, the company says.
This project is one of several recently secured across multiple sectors and maintains high levels of factory productivity through 2022.
