The light engineering facility was designed and built to fulfill a requirement to support 3 operational Squadrons operating Typhoon aircraft to provide engines under a contract between the MOD and Rolls Royce.The design was to comply with the Maintenance Approval Operating Scheme (MAOS) Regulations.
The key functional requirements:
visible segregation of serviceable and unserviceable parts and engines;
cleanliness of work environment;
availability of technical information at the work space;
ease of access to support office;
These requirements were achieved by collocating functions and facilities so that the workshop and office areas had a visible link by means of a glazed feature. The building was designed so that Rolls Royce and RAF personnel could interface in a controlled manner and the building remain secure at all times. It also complied with MOD standards but incorporated the Rolls Royce corporate culture and identity.
