LARS completed the refurbishment and upgrade works to the Met Office Radar Stations at Ingham in Lincolnshire and Hill of Dudwick in Aberdeenshire.

Work included the fabrication and installation of spiral and straight staircases and platforms to improve accessibility, and the refurbishment of the radars and the fitting of new radomes.

The work on each site is part of the renewal programme by the Met Office and Environment Agency to upgrade weather radar capability, as well as improving the buildings and tower infrastructure to meet the latest health and safety requirements.
