Aegis was appointed to the CDM Co-ordinator role for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter machining facility at BAE Systems, Samlesbury, which was opened in September 2010. The 9,000m2 plant, which cost £14 million to construct, houses equipment and systems for manufacturing titanium components for the F-35.
The Aegis CDM Co-ordinator worked closely with the client and designer to ensure that 610 Building would be future-proofed, with flexibility and ease of maintenance designed into both the building and the machinery inside it.
Aegis’ work on 610 Building gained national recognition at the 2010 UK Builder and Engineer Awards. Aegis was runner up in the CDM Co-ordinator of the Year category, an award sponsored by the national trade magazine ‘Builder & Engineer’ and judged by the HSE and the APS.
Aegis also conducted a BREEAM assessment of 610 Building, which achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’.
