Stanley Consultants Provides Program Management Assistance at First European F-35A Fighter Beddown
Royal Air Force Lakenheath was named the first U.S. European beddown location for the F-35A in December 2015 by the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The U.S. Air Force’s 48th Fighter Wing (48th FW), the installation management executive, began planning a construction program that included 20 military construction (MILCON) projects and another 10 facility, sustainment, restoration and modernization projects. The wing retained Leidos and Stanley Consultants to provide on-site program and project management services to enable the delivery of over $800 million in design and construction of facilities and infrastructure to the F-35A beddown and recapitalization of the Medical Treatment Facility, DoDEA High School and AAFES Exchange at RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom. Stanley and Leidos initially mobilized four personnel to manage the program, increasing in number to present 10 personnel imbedded in the 48 FW program integration office (PIO).
