WORK is expected to begin immediately at MoD Stafford after the multi-million pound redevelopment contract was awarded to Lend Lease.
The Australian company, which has a base in London, will oversee the project which will see two signal regiments relocate from Germany.
The redevelopment work, valued at around £100m, will involve the construction of 25 new buildings and the refurbishment of eight existing buildings. New and refurbished facilities will include; workshops, a combined Mess, Single Living Accommodation for personnel, offices, garages, catering, retail and leisure facilities and a Medical and Dental Centre.
Today’s contract award follows a procurement process run by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), which is responsible for managing land and property on behalf of the MOD.
