Tetra Tech continues to support various Ministry of Defence agencies, including DIO, the RAF and Defence Equipment and Support, with multidisciplinary and high-end project management expertise to manage the £350m Lossiemouth Development Programme. Sitting alongside the RAF and DIO, Tetra Tech’s project managers, engineers, and environmental experts are surveying, designing, and managing the development of airfield infrastructure, mission planning, aircraft maintenance, technical training facilities, and single-living accommodation for air and ground crew at RAF Lossiemouth. Tetra Tech’s team is also managing significant upgrades to the air base’s utilities, including gas, electricity and drainage systems.

Neil Malcolm, Director at Tetra Tech and Programme Manager since 2017, said: “In supporting this next phase of works, we are bringing Tetra Tech’s high-end design and consulting services to the RAF’s E-7 to ensure the infrastructure upgrades and new projects are managed effectively and efficiently for our client. Our multidisciplinary expertise provides our clients with a holistic management approach, which has underpinned our work on many significant defence programmes like Army Basing, relocating troops to Salisbury Plain, delivering infrastructure to BATUK in Kenya, decommissioning Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, and supporting accommodation at Catterick Garrison.”

Air Commodore Simon Strasdin, Programme Director until October 2020, said: “In reaching the Lossiemouth Development Programme – Initial Operating Capability, the Programme Team has achieved success beyond expectation and is deserving of recognition, setting a benchmark for future Royal Air Force major infrastructure projects to follow.
