We have been chosen to work on the Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s (DIO) new Service Family Accommodation scheme.
In the latest phase of the Army Basing Programme to support the relocation of 4,300 military personnel and their families in the Salisbury Plain area, the multi-million pound development will deliver up to 917 new homes over 3 separate sites.
Working in partnership with main contractor, Lovell Partnerships, we will be undertaking the infrastructure works to the proposed scheme and these will include the construction of adoptable Section 38 roads and sewers, along with associated provision of services, i.e. gas, water, electric, IT and comms.
Also, the overall project requires the upgrading of existing county highways in the form of new roundabouts, junctions and highways. These works will be carried out concurrently by ourselves with the housing development operation.
Stuart Chamberlain, O’Brien Contractors Director, said: “We are honoured to have been chosen by Lovell Partnerships and look forward, once again, in applying our civil engineering expertise to deliver a development to the highest levels of quality. It is testament to our team who worked on the Beacon Barracks SFA scheme, that Lovell has shown confidence in our capability to deliver this prestigious project.”
John Leary, Lovell Operational Director, said: “The SFA scheme presents many exciting challenges but what is paramount is the necessity to assemble the right team, a team capable of delivering quality work throughout a high volume fast track programme. OBCL were a key player on MOD Stafford and I am delighted to have them alongside us on the Plain. Our partnership gives me the confidence that we can meet the Client’s demanding programme and at the same time assure DIO of value for money”.
