MOD seeks contractor for major new training facility

Tuesday, 17 July 2012

GVA has been appointed by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to assist in identifying potential Contractors who may be invited to provide an integrated infrastructure solution for the relocation of The Princess Royal Barracks, Surrey (Deepcut) and consolidation from other locations, to Worthy Down in Hampshire.

The integrated infrastructure solution has two main deliverables:

The Contractor will be required to provide a Training Infrastructure which will comprise of (but not exclusively) the construction of a Tri-Service Training and Administration Facility with ancillary Catering, Retail, Leisure, Community, Welfare, Single Living and Service Family Accommodation, at Worthy Down, Hampshire.

Secondly, the Contractor will be required to manage the relocation of military units to Worthy Down and the subsequent redevelopment and disposal of the PRB Deepcut site.

The PRB (Deepcut) site has the potential to deliver a high quality sustainable development of 1200 residential units and associated commercial, retail and community use. It is envisaged that the Contractor will progress the current planning position, facilitate and fund the infrastructure provision and manage the disposal process to maximise the net value of receipts in return for a share of the net proceeds realised. The Contractor will also have the opportunity of building out a percentage of the development.

The contract for this opportunity will be advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) in early August with a contract value of £200m - £300m. For further details please contact Barney Hillsdon at barney.hillsdon@gva.co.uk or Steve Taylor at steve.taylor@gva.co.uk of GVA.
