Spaciotempo - Sports facility for RAF


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Spaciotempo UK Ltd
: 19 January, 2008  (New Product)
Temporary building providers Spaciotempo® has supplied RAF Marham near King’s Lynn with an additional sports facility to help it cope with a 100% increase in personnel at the base.
Home to the primary attack Tornado GR4 aircraft, the RAF Marham station is one of the largest and busiest in the UK. And, with two squadrons returning from Germany and other units also relocating to Marham, the number of personnel at the base has increased from 1,500 to more than 3,000 over the past six years.


To accommodate this increase, the station’s existing sports hall has been refurbished and converted into a fully equipped gymnasium. Following a competitive tender process, Spaciotempo® was selected to supply a temporary building to accommodate other sport and leisure activities at the base.


With a height of 8m, the 500m2 building provides ample space for a range of sports including badminton, basketball and five-a-side football, as well as the annual RAF fitness test. Complete with a specially manufactured rubber floor and a heating system engineered to run off the original system, the building provides a safe and comfortable environment.


Thanks to Spaciotempo®’s in-house design, production and installation capabilities, the building was manufactured and installed in just two weeks, with the minimum of disruption to the base’s activities.


The modular nature of the building and flooring system allow it to be easily modified or re-deployed at other bases in the future. At the same time, the aluminium structure is strong, stable and durable, capable of withstanding the harshest of conditions and offering the same safety standards as a permanent building.
