Engineering and design consultancy Ramboll has won a further 10-year framework to carry out modernisation projects on research stations and infrastructure for British Antarctic Survey. The contract is valued at between GBP 40-50 million. As technical advisors, Ramboll will provide project management and structural, geotechnical and MEP engineering, as well as consultancy on buildings, energy, sustainability, fire and renewable energy. The team, which started working for BAS in 2016, will also manage third party services including architecture, quantity surveying, and snow and wind modelling.

The next phase of work with BAS will include the second phase of the Rothera Modernisation programme, which includes a new marine facility, and accommodation block. An energy assessment will also take place, with the aim to reduce the station’s reliance on fossil fuels. Ramboll has previously been working on the BAS Rothera Research Station, which in December 2019 resumed construction work on the 74m long wharf in preparation to berth the RRS Sir David Attenborough.

In addition to the continued work at the Rothera Research Station, Ramboll will commence a masterplan for the King Edward Point Research Station, as well as exploring further connected projects in both Antarctica and the UK.
