MILITARY PLANNING AND PRECISION FOR
The very nature of any Ministry of Defence site means information is classified, and with a veil of secrecy, this meant treading carefully to establish the location of services, asbestos and avoid unexploded bombs.
Dating back to Roman times, Colchester Army Garrison has expanded considerably, and is currently home to the British Army’s 16th Air assault Brigade and its associated regiments.
Our mission, through four phases of demolition and regeneration throughout a considerable area of the site, was part of an MoD programme to improve family accommodation while releasing elements of the site for private development.
And as you would expect of such a prestigious project, our work was planned and executed with military precision, during the 25 months we recently spent on-site.
