Serco New Training Centre

The Defence Academy is the institution responsible for post-graduate education and the majority of command, staff, leadership, defence management, acquisition and technology training for members of the UK Armed Forces and Ministry of Defence Civil Servants.

It is also responsible for the provision of non-technical research and assessment in support of the department, and for establishing and maintaining itself as the Ministry of Defence’s primary link with UK universities and with international military educational institutions.

We were commissioned to refurbish an office building at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom to provide a new national headquarters for the College of Management and Technology.

The works involved extensive re-modelling of a pre-fabricated structure to provide an open plan office layout. The entire building was fitted out with new lighting, Category 6 data, telecoms, welfare facilities, DDA  improvements, upgrading of the fire alarm system and general fixtures, fittings and decorations. The headquarters was officially opened in April 2009 by the Director General of the Defence Academy.
