Ministry of Defence Military Construction Projects
Working closely with our Customers we have been part of a team that has constructed several large scale developments to Ministry of Defence (MOD) Military bases.
Norton Manor HQ
Lend Lease has selected Davis & Barrett to provide a variety of materials and labour to this new facility which will benefit this impressive site. Previous work within MOD sites gave Davis & Barrett the advantage and awareness of what is required within a high security area and the restrictions that are applied. Davis & Barrett enjoyed working for the first time with Lend Lease and hope to strengthen this new relationship with further projects in the future.
Major development is underway at RNAS Culdrose which will help cater for the future of the Helston air base.
The project involves demolishing two hangers and associated squadron offices, and completely rebuilding them.
The airborne surveillance, control, Sea King training and search and rescue squadrons will move into the new hangers, which will mean the entire Sea King Force can be located together.
Davis & Barrett completed the masonry works to the first 2000m2 hanger/offices at the end of the summer 2010. During this summer, we will be returning to undertake the final hanger which will house the Royal Navy’s new Merlin search and rescue helicopter.
This fascinating new facility at this impressive Royal Marine base is Davis & Barrett’s new challenge. Working closely with the MOD in the past, means we have been chosen to complete these works. Using a mixture of traditional materials, Davis & Barrett will demonstrate their proven methods and again will become part of the "site troops" that provides these facilities.
The Royal Marine base provides excellent training facilities and with Davis & Barrett’s past experience working on MOD facilities, this will provide us with the knowledge to complete this exciting project, within the restrictions of the site.
Culdrose Phase 2, Helston
With phase 2 hanger now begun Davis & Barrett have returned to Helston to undertake these masonry works that are similar to last year’s phase. Returning the second time everyone in the team is looking forward to implementing the plans that have already been put into place that will see the works undertaken even more efficiently than last time.
New Medical Centre, RM Poole
The Royal Marine base is home to new medical facilities, Davis & Barrett’s past experience working on MOD facilities provided the inside lane in being awarded this prestige’s project. With a mix of block and brick infill to the steel frame structure D&B demonstrate their proven systems and experience in these methods.
