A major five-year project to upgrade infrastructure at RAF Menwith Hill is planned.
The Ministry of Defence’s Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) this week appointed a consortium of building consultants, Mace, Turner & Townsend and Atkins, as a delivery partner for the United States Visiting Forces (USVF) Infrastructure Programme.
Few details have been made public about the programme other than it will involve “upgrading existing facilities and building new ones” at the base in Nidderdale as well as RAF Fairford in Gloucester.
Steve Rix, DIO programme director, said the programme would help the US military “execute missions” from the UK.
