Carillion wins £41m contract to build facilities at Yeovilton
The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that Carillion will take the major works package in the expansion of Royal Navy Air Station Yeovilton.
The contract worth £41.2m is known as Contract 5 and includes demolition and construction of three accommodation blocks for senior ratings.
Work also includes building a sports pavilion and alterations to existing medical and dental centres.
In April, Carillion got its foot in the door by securing the first £6m job at the base to build a new squadron office for the Royal Navy’s Lynx Wildcat helicopters and Commando Helicopter Force.
The latest deal covers full project management, design and construction and refurbishment of existing buildings.
Contract 5 was initially budgeted at £50m-£60m by the MoD.
