Prestwick UNITER Building

Recent Page Trail:

The Prestwick UNITER building was one of three UNITER buildings constructed in Scotland as part of a Secure Survivable Integrated Network (SSIN) for the RAF, a project dating from the 1970s. Located on the northern side of the B739 road, close to Monkton, the Prestwick UNITER building lies to the east of HMS Gannet, adjacent to Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.

The single storey building is on a site covering approximately 8,146 square metres and is constructed from reinforced concrete, with a metal clad roof, and no exterior windows. The interior space was largely devoted to plant areas which would have allowed the building to be operationally self sufficient, using oil fuelled electrical generators and air conditioning systems. Front access is through a heavy steel door with a unique locking system, with an emergency exit to the rear, also with a heavy steel door. The building, and a small electricity sub station, lies within a grassy compound, surrounded by a fence with metal vehicle doors towards the front.

All three Scottish UNITER buildings were put up for sale by the owners, Defence Estates, in early 2008.
