Gilbert-Ash was appointed as main contractor to build architect Liam O’Connor’s emotive memorial to 55,573 members of Bomber Command who lost their lives during World War II. This national monument was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the 28th June 2012.

Constructed in Portland stone, it has a roof made of aluminium reclaimed from a Halifax bomber shot down over Belgium in 1944. At its centre is a sculpture by Philip Jackson in bronze, depicting one of the Lancaster Bomber crews after a mission.
