The strategic facility will be home to the new fleet of hi-tech P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol Aircraft – set to boost the UK’s maritime patrol capability – holding three at any one time. The development also includes maintenance space, flight planning rooms, pilot simulators and offices for up to 600 aircrew, engineers and personnel. 

Robertson has been on the ground at RAF Lossiemouth since April 2018. As a quick reaction alert site for the north of the UK, the airbase is fully operational and the team has shown exceptional project and safety management to comply with RAF restrictions as well as our own processes. During enabling works and construction, our ongoing communication with multiple and often competing stakeholders has ensured programme efficiency as the RAF continues its activities. 

To give some idea of the scale of the project, up to 280 double-decker buses could park in the new building. On completion, RAF Lossiemouth will be the only airbase with an infrastructure similar to Jacksonville in Florida, the third-largest naval air station in the United States.
