MOD Lyneham

Balfour Beatty

Scott Brownrigg is the architectural Practice and Lead Designer for the regeneration of the former RAF base at Lyneham.

The project is the first of three phases ultimately creating a tri-service training environment for the Army, Navy, and Air force. This first phase is the move of the School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (SEME) from Bordon and Arborfield garrisons in Hampshire. The construction is over a very tight 19 month period and comprises new buildings including training, messing, gymnasium, medical and dental facilities together with a dining centre and over 1000 student and trainer bed spaces. 38 buildings, including five hangars, are refurbished to meet the overall training requirement. Extensive ground modelling has been undertaken to create natural obstacles for a variety of vehicle and tactical training requirements.
