Carillion will will deliver new accommodation, sports and medical facilities at the Somerset air station. Works start this month and the project is set to be completed in November 2016.

Richard Lumby, managing director Carillion Defence, said: “We are delighted to have secured these contracts which will see Carillion deliver vital facilities for both the Royal Navy and Army and the men and women who will be based at RNAS Yeovilton.

“This project will not only see Carillion transform the base but also create local jobs, including apprenticeships, and work with local suppliers as part of our commitment to bring lasting benefits to our customers and the communities in which we work.”
