RAF Mildenhall – New R11 Parking Compound

Lane & Skillen have recently completed a new R11 Parking compound for ATIM Government Services @ RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk. I as the Construction Manager for APTIM have had the pleasure to work with Lane & Skillen on a daily basis throughout the project. This project was completed within programme, Defect free at point of handover, Accident free (13,200 man hours) and having to endure the worst pandemic in living memory as well as the 5th wettest October since records began. I cannot speak highly enough of this company & look forward to working with them again in the future. Rex Oliver (Construction Manager – Aptim Government Services – Europe)
