R G Carter recently completed a new memorial building at the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincolnshire. The Chadwick Centre, named after the designer of the Lancaster Bomber, Roy Chadwick, will be used as a visitor and education centre for schools, to tell the personal stories of the members of the RAF Bomber Command impacted by the bombing campaigns during the Second World War.
The centre provides a gateway to the memorial garden and includes an exhibition space, reference library, a museum, restaurant and multi-media suite. Re-enactments, documents and imagery all capture the lives of those who served in Bomber Command.
A media event was held on the 17th January to create awareness of this historic Lincoln landmark, with the centre due to open to the public later this month.
Tim Owen, Project Manager for R G Carter said, “It was an honour for R G Carter to have been chosen to help deliver such a historic and important building which will benefit the local community and future generations for years to come. This collaborative vision will remind us of all the brave individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War II.”
