IVEL Consult took part in the design and co-ordination (as a sub-contractor) of one of the largest MOD PFI schemes to date (£2.2bn), providing modern living and working accommodation for 3,500 military personnel.
An energy efficient offsite construction method was adopted to optimize the construction process and minimise impacts on sustainability for both the environment and the community.
The design maximises use of natural ventilation and daylight and incorporates high levels of insulation. It also features low-maintenance internal and external finishes and sustainable urban drainage systems.
The site also includes training facilities, indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, a regional court martial centre, and education and welfare facilities.
