WCN Editorial Team 5 Aug 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Morgan Sindall has secured a £67M contract from BAE Systems to extend its Devonshire Dock Hall submarine building complex.

The project will include the incorporation of new manufacturing and installation capabilities at the Barrow-in-Furness site .

The expansion is part of an investment programme that includes the construction of a number of new facilities and the refurbishment of existing buildings.
This includes the Central Yard Facility, which will measure in 45m in height. Construction is now in progress, with the first pieces of its steel structure now in place.

A new 28,000 sq m off-site logistics facility is also scheduled to open in late 2016.

Allan Day, director of the site redevelopment programme at BAE Systems Submarines, said: "We are in the third year of an eight-year redevelopment programme which is starting to see some dramatic changes across our site as we enhance our facilities and capabilities for the future.

"The Devonshire Dock Hall is an iconic building — home to the construction of some of the world's most advanced and capable submarines. This contract will enhance the facility to ensure our workforce can deliver future submarine programmes to the Royal Navy.”
