WYG's Stevenage Office is playing a major part in the refurbishment of the Commissary (a supermarket) at RAF Fairford, for Defence Estates - United States Forces and the Defense Commissary Agency. RAF Fairford is a United States Air Force Base and is a Reserve Air Base. It was used by B52’s in the recent conflicts in the Gulf.
With a project value of £1.3m WYG is providing Management Services, Mechanical, Electrical, Civil and Structural services. The project involves the replacement of all the frozen and chilled food cases, along with all the equipment that supplies them. The meat processing facility is being removed as the delivery of pre packed meats makes it surplus to requirements. The flooring is also being renewed.
In conjunction with the works a temporary sales area will be set up within the Store’s warehouse as the store has to stay open throughout the work.
