SERVICING AREA AND TECHNICAL ACCOMMODATION DELIVERED AT BAGRAM AIRPORT

Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan is an important logistical hub for the combined armed forces who are part of the military and peace keeping forces in the region. They require state of the art facilities to ensure they are not just able to operate efficiently but that all their activities can be safely carried out. So when a new servicing area and associated technical accommodation was required on the air base they came to Kepi to help deliver some of the facilities and features.
