Imtech secured the contract for the design and build of a new aircraft hangar with associated support buildings known as an operational conversion unit which included the reconstruction of two runways and taxiways. This covered facilities for aircrew, space for maintenance, training and operational planning as well as landing pads designed for the F-35s aircraft capability to land vertically.
Careful planning was imperative given the secure nature of the project and the fact that the station remained operational throughout the works. Imtech deployed a team that adhered to strict security policies to complete the work to the client’s requirements.
Works included the installation of complex mechanical and electrical systems to the Runway Lighting Control Buildings associated with the Air Operating Surfaces refurbishment project. Additionally we delivered installations for the Operational Conversion Unit (OCU) consisting of a hangar, offices and technical facilities, canteen for the pilots, the Aircraft Standing Platforms for both the OCU and Squadron Buildings, power and lighting to the security systems in association with the enclave fencing, and Ground Support Equipment Stores.
Imtech delivered the M&E design and build work supporting the project on time and budget and whilst maintaining the strictest confidentiality measures. This has enabled the client RAF Marham to expand its facilities and presence whilst maintaining a safe and modern working environment.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Imtech. Their contribution played a significant part in the overall successful early completion of an award-winning project of national interest.

Community Custody Units (CCU) are an innovative approach to addressing the reintegration and resettlement of women into the community and reducing the risk of re-offending with a consequential return to prison.
The focus on the CCU’s is helping women maintain, or in some cases, rebuild links with family, friends and community. Supported through individually tailored programmes to access the community following a multi-agency risk assessment and will include access to:
The Scottish Prison Service (SPS) plan to have five CCU’s in Scotland in total, each capable of accommodating circa 20 women. They will be in close proximity to local services and good transport links.
Imtech worked in partnership with Ogilvie Construction delivering the M&E package for the first two CCU’s in Scotland located in Dundee and Glasgow, along with the installation of renewable technologies to meet the estates net zero carbon ambitions.
Ogilvie took a partnering approach with Imtech on the new CCU projects and working together we delivered the new facilities to the satisfaction of the Scottish Prison Service.
The project was the second phase of works for the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Civic Centre originally built by Sir Robert McAlpine in 1968.
The works had six sectional completions, including the internal demolition, structural alterations and reconfiguration of existing floor plates. As the buildings and internal finishes were Grade II listed, specific attention to areas of historic significance had to be planned ahead of the project execution. A key objective was to retain as much of the concrete structural frame and existing façade, with new external penetrations being minimised.
Following our appointment at Stage 3 we worked collaboratively to reengineer the project to meet the specific budgetary and client requirements. The project needed to ensure that three of the six blocks were remodelled and integrated with the Phase 1 works, fitting modern services into the 1960’s building. The scheme required the consolidation of several of the existing council departments to create over 8,000 m2 of floor space for a new tenant, Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Services. Our proactive approach enabled numerous challenges to be overcome during the build through the use of innovation including using multi-service pre-fabricated brackets and swapping out welded pipework for Vitoloc, therefore reducing hot working.
Our works, undertaken over 10 months, included installing a unique AV equipment system, all audio enhancement systems, VRF to all rooms, chilled water, LV busbar, all lighting and controls and photovoltaics.
The use of BIM Level 2 aided spatial issues to be overcome and the early collaborative approach benefitted the project immensely. The spatial co-ordinating of services also enabled the fast-track programme to be adhered to ensuring the project was completed on time.
“It’s been good working with Imtech on Newcastle Civic, I cannot commend the site team enough for their commitment and hard work on the Project.”
