The future of X navy jobs in Barrow in Furness looks more secure now that work has begun on BAE Systems’ £300 million redevelopment scheme. The work will help to secure jobs in the area and increase the degree of investment in the sector.
The company is carrying out the work within the eight-year regeneration programme it has planned for the site in Barrow in Furness. The site at Ramsden Dock comprises nearly 14 acres of land which the company purchased from Cumbria County Council in 2014. They received planning permission to carry out the redevelopment work in August 2014.
The first stage of the process was to carry our preparatory work in order for construction to begin safely. This included the re-routing of energy supplies and pipework. The first element of the building work has now started.
The £23 million logistics facility will be designed and built by Shepherd Construction. It includes a 28,000-square-metre building which will help to transform the site. The entire project will feature both refurbishment work and the construction of new facilities. The programme of work will employ around 850 contractors when it reaches its peak. This will enable the company to work on a new class of submarine that will be a replacement for the Vanguard.
The work that is being carried out by BAE Systems will be an important element in the future of X navy jobs in Barrow in Furness. It shows that the government and the company have a commitment to providing the country with the best possible defence facilities.
The redevelopment programme is just one component of the eight-year plan that is in place to upgrade the yard. The site has a big role to play in Britain’s defence network and, in conjunction with the highly skilled team, it will be crucial in delivering the next generation of submarines to the Royal Navy.
