Typhoon Propulsion Support Facility

This facility is based at RAF Lossiemouth in Moray and is operated by Rolls Royce.
The facility provides technical / service support for the EJ200 Roll Royce engine which provides propulsion for the latest RAF Typhoon Aircraft based at RAF Lossiemouth.
The building comprises engine service workshop and engine storage, administration office, testing facility, client reception and meeting areas.
ACTS provided the Mechanical and Electrical and Data services design specification and inspection for this project.

(II) AC Squadron - RAF Lossiemouth

The RAF base at Lossiemouth is home to three squadrons of the latest Typhoon aircraft and ACTS have provided designs and specification services for all three, both for interim provision and final new facilities.
The (II) AC5 Sqn facility is located in various buildings previously occupied by 617 sqn (Dambuster Sqn). The site required to be completely refurbished with new accommodation provision for squadron administration, planning and personal welfare . Also included are nine existing HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelters) which now provide aircraft service and maintenance together with a new ground support facility. ACTS design implemented
energy saving technologies within the design to achieve a DREAM score of Excellent.

Incident Command & Control Centre - HMNB Clyde

A new Incident Command and Control Centre capable of accommodating the incident management functions of any major incident (e.g. Security, Nuclear, Fire and Environmental, etc) within HMNB Clyde at Faslane.
The ICCC replaces the existing Base Defence Head Quarters and Nuclear Accident Head Quarters. The new building provides a coordinated solution fit for purpose within this key naval establishment.
The building consists of a main control hub and ancillary office accommodation which is occupied 24hr/day & 365days/year. The building is constructed to industry standards.
However, an increased level of resilience was designed and built into the M&E services to ensure the primary function of the building is unaffected in the event of an emergency, power outage or system failure.
The design incorporated VRV, mechanical heat recovery ventilation, fire suppression, close control air conditioning, public health, small power, lighting, specialist base IT installation, security and fire alarm installation

Kibble & Building 200 - RNAD Coulport

ACTS Partnership Ltd undertook the design of the M&E services for 3No.
new police accommodation buildings. The 2No. buildings were located at the
entrance gate to the Coulport Base and 1No. building was located behind the
secure perimeter fence.
The building services ranged from efficient LED light to an LZC air source heat
pump providing LTHW for space heating via radiators.
Due to the remote location of Building 200, the fibre network link was over a
kilometer long. Detailed trenching had to be arranged and coordinated with
existing service and base operations.

Physical & Recreational Training Facility - RM Condor Arbroath

The P&RTC Project was undertaken to provide the Royal Marines base in Arbroath
with a facility capable of delivering physical and recreational training requirements
to all dependant units.
The building consists of an main indoor multi-function hall, climbing wall, dojo,
squash courts, gym and showering/changing facilities.
The building maximises natural daylight via transparent, daylight diffusing wall
paneling along the length of the main hall and dojo. Natural ventilation is delivered
to the main hall by use of a diaphragm wall system.
The building utilises gas as the primary heating source and has a combination
of natural and mechanical heat recovery ventilation. In addition, the gym area is
provided with comfort cooling.

HMNB Clyde - Firearms Training Centre

The FTC Project was undertaken to provide the UK and HMNB Clyde with a facility
capable of delivering small arms training requirements to all dependant units.
The building consists of an indoor electronic firing range, classrooms, office accommodation for the MoD Police and the Naval Military Training School and a
weapons armoury.
Due to the buildings proximity to an existing 25m outdoor firing range, the building
was constructed with enhanced acoustic qualities.
The building utilises steam as the primary heating source and is fully ventilated by
mechanical heat recovery air handling units. In addition, a number of heavily occupied spaces are provided with comfort cooling.
The building’s bespoke entrance canopy has been constructed to support PV panels.
The electricity generated by the panels is used to lessen the buildings demand
for grid electricity.
