Algeco wins £31m MOD accommodation contracts

Algeco has confirmed two major £31m MOD accommodation contracts to supply modular accommodation for barracks in Stafford and Scotland.


There are two SLA blocks totalling £21m to be delivered in 47 weeks at Kinloss Barracks in Forres, Scotland, using the Algeco modular permanent building system, with work beginning on site in December.


This is followed by the demolition of the existing buildings. All works on site creating the 112-bedroom SLA will be completed in an overall period of 65-weeks.


Beacon Barracks Stafford is a £10m contract for supply of a 60-bedroom Single Living Accommodation for soldiers. Work begins on-site in September and will be completed again on a 46-week schedule, including the demolition of existing buildings.


Algeco will act as Principal Contractor on both projects, providing a full turnkey solution including demolition of existing buildings.


The modules for the Stafford Barracks project will be manufactured in the company’s factory at Carnaby in East Yorkshire, and the modules for the Kinloss Barracks project will be manufactured at the factory in Inverurie, Scotland, with all modules being delivered to site with a Pre-Manufactured Value (PMV) of around 80%.


MOD Kinloss Barracks and MOD Stafford are being designed by AHR Architects, supporting OSS on the construction stage architectural design through from both their Leeds and Glasgow offices.

Both projects have new three-storey buildings that will provide high quality accommodation with integral communal areas. They feature a brick slip façade and sustainable features including solar PV and heat pumps.

The completed buildings are aiming to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating, meaning they are in the top 10% of UK new non-domestic buildings in terms of best practice.
