IWF (Integrated Welfare facility) RAF Lossiemouth

 

IWF (Integrated Welfare facility) RAF Lossiemouth – project to provide a new Welfare facility to support servicemen and women’s families.

supermess facility, HMNB Clyde, Faslane

 

The site faces the eastern shore of the Gare Loch and the facility provides a bridge to the accommodation sector. The scheme links the new officer’s accommodation with the existing senior rates mess (Fieldhouse) with the remainder of the accommodation replacing the former mess (Lochinvar). The building sits in close proximity to the site’s western boundary and as such required enhanced blast protection to the building fabric including masonry, windows and doors.

 

The design features a double height retail mall which acts as the key circulation for visitors to the conference facilities, bowling alley and all ranks bar facilities.  The entrance to the officer’s mess is across a pedestrian bridge and forms a formal ceremonial axis to the building and piazza flag staff.

The main drivers were Rolls Royces’ aspirational requirements to provide a Service Delivery Centre which reflects their corporate image. This influenced the external colour scheme and materials. The building was also designed to achieve the following:

 

1: (MAOS) Maintenance Approval Operating Scheme

 

2: “One Team” delivery by achieving visible segregation

 

3: A comfortable & safe working environment where the external envelope had to be designed to achieve a sound reduction Rw(dB)51; comply with “Vulnerable Building “ counter terrorism requirements and achieve 2hr fire separation between the workshop and office zones

Scope: To provide operational and engineering facilities for three squadrons of Typhoon aircraft to operate out of RAF Lossiemouth.

 

The contract was let through the Regional Prime Contract (Scotland). The design of all buildings complied with current CTM, Security; acoustics and sightlines. Due to the location of most of the buildings most were constructed of masonry walls; the windows were triple glazed and the secure areas and main roofs were capped with a concrete slab. All operational and mission planning areas had to comply with CTM by means of access and construction.

The design features a strong mono-pitched roof form utilising aluminium standing seam roof cladding and facing bricks in two shades of grey. Unusually the building as no ground floor windows but includes concrete chicanes to gain building access and ballistic doors and barriers placed at high level, both for defensive and combat functionality. Otherwise the building is a conventional steel frame protected with intumescent paint, masonry cavity walls with the outer leaf supported on shelf angles at every floor and thermal insulation within the cavity and on the inner surface wall lining.

 

The catering area is designed to DMG 08 standards and includes a stainless steel Heydal ventilated ceiling system. All floors are heated using a wet based under-floor heating system with comfort cooling throughout. Windows are intended to open for cleaning only.

 

 

6SQn Accommodation, RAF Lossiemouth, Moray

 

Scope: To provide operation and engineering facilities for one sqn of Typhoon aircraft to operate at RAF Lossiemouth.

 

This project was an urgent requirement and was therefore let through the Core Works Framework Agreement in order for a target cost to be agreed timeously. The design had to comply with CTM; Security; acoustics and have sightlines to the aircraft line. Due to its location it was built of masonry walls, triple glazing and was capped with a masonry slab. All operational and mission planning areas had to comply with CTM and existing construction was upgraded to comply with these requirements.
