The Royal National Lifeboat Institute has a considerable construction programme, building or upgrading lifeboat stations around the coast at a rate of 12-14 a year. But its major current project is the £17m All-Weather Lifeboat Centre in Poole, Dorset, which brings together a production facility for a new generation of Shannon class all-weather lifeboats and maintenance and refit facilities for its existing Severn class fleet. Contractor Leadbitter is currently on site with completion due in early 2015, although the facility will not be fully operational until 2017.
