RAF Control Tower Project
AGB are delighted to announce that we have recently won a contact to convert a RAF control tower into a stunning, eco-friendly home. The derelict RAF control tower is an iconic structure at Errol Airfield which had fallen into disrepair. The building has a special place in history going back over seventy years. During the Second World War the farm at Errol Airfield was subject to a compulsory purchase order under the Defence of the Realm Act. It was commissioned as RAF Errol No 9 Pilot Advanced Flying Unit (PAFU) and remained in Operation until 1945. It housed the special No. 305 Ferry Training Unit, which trained Soviet crews before they received an order of 200 Armstrong Whitworth Albemarles.
Now back in the owner’s possession and with the Soviet aircrews long gone, the owners have decided to convert the building into a state-of-the-art home.
The new design will retain many features including all of the original watch office windows. The observation balcony will be re-instated to enjoy the spectacular views of the Fife hills beyond the River Tay. Made from contemporary stainless steel and glass construction, the balcony will be a stunning feature and is a key element of the build.
