Lille Barracks in Aldershot is currently undergoing an £8 million private finance initiative by the Ministry of Defence to upgrade buildings in the two garrisons. The 35-year project will improve homes and services for soldiers across Aldershot and Salisbury Plain, and will involve redevelopment to the living quarters, working accommodation, messes and headquarters buildings.
We undertook the mechanical and electrical installation on three residential buildings within the redevelopment. Each three storey residence consisted of 21 en-suite bedrooms, baggage stores, communal rooms, drying and utility rooms. Our team worked to meet a tight deadline, as the installation needed to be completed in good time for the Grenadier Guards return to the UK following a six month deployment in Afghanistan.
