RAF Leeming – RAFX, Innovation & eXperimental Hub – Northallerton DL7 9NJ

From initial contact through to delivery and including the after sales care, the engagement was very professional, friendly, and extremely user friendly. Steven and Marcus conducted several scoping meetings and visits to RAF Leeming, including briefing to several members of the Royal Air Force’s Senior Leadership Team (SLT). Their presentations clearly demonstrated their expertise and passion for delivering a high quality service and product.

Their commitment to deliver against a challenging project with several iterations of the requirement should be commended, they engaged repeatedly to ensure we fitted our new Innovation Hub (RAFX) with the most appropriate and effective furniture and graphics. Delivery and installation was equally as professional as the purchasing process.  We would not hesitate to use Richardson’s again on any future projects and we have shared their contact details to our RAF colleagues to allow them the opportunity to also benefit from this fantastic service.

Thank you for the all your help and support and RAFX look forward to utilising your products during all of our Innovation activity’.

RAFX, Innovation & eXperimental Hub, RAF Leeming

RAF Leeming is home to theThe Hawk T1, which is used primarily in the aggressor role by 100 Squadron, who provide opposition forces for front-line training in addition to Close Air Support (CAS) simulation to Land units for currency training.

We were extremely excited to be involved in the space planning and design of their new Innovation Centre which is where all the planning goes into important missions. We worked on several designs and came up with both open and closed areas with plenty of breakout opportunities.


It’s nice to hear back from the people who designed and created our brilliant office space, especially a year on as it is not just for looking good – but a fully functioning Hub for innovation to happen! We’re always pleased to hear that it is such a positive talking point from everyone who visits RAF Leeming’s RAFX Innovation Hub, which is such a variety of people, so please take that away as a massive positive. The option to have multiple meeting spaces both formal and informal is pivotal in the image we strive to create and I can assure you it’s instrumental in the work we do daily. So thank you! – Deputy Operating Officer
