An increase in the number of officers based at the Infantry Training Centre (ITC) at Catterick led to a requirement to build 2 new Single Living Accommodation (SLA) blocks. There are 114 rooms for junior officers in one block and 42 for senior officers in the second. Other facilities include a laundry room, drying room and snack preparation areas.

Mike Reynolds, Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Project Manager, said:


DIO is here to provide the right buildings in the right places for defence, so I’m really pleased to have been involved in this build. These modern accommodation blocks will improve the lives of officers living there and should therefore help them to provide top notch training to the next generation of infantry soldiers.

Lieutenant Colonel Angus Philp, Commanding Officer, Infantry Training Centre Support Battalion, said:


These blocks significantly improve the standard of accommodation for staff at the ITC. This is an important part of investing in our people and making the experience of working here enjoyable as well as rewarding.

The contract was awarded to Debut Services Ltd, a joint venture between Lend Lease and Babcock, in December 2012 and work commenced on site in April 2013. The project required the construction of a new car park on the site of an existing annexe, which was demolished.

£10 million???
No wonder the MoD is skint if it forked out that much for a couple of blocks of cabins! Over £64,000 per cabin!!!
Which idiot wrote the contract for that one?
Oh wait, forgot its for officers so there will be solid gold taps with four poster beds and gin and tonic dispensers in every cabin along with a civvy butler and cleaner for every five cabins
MoD seen off again. No way is that worth the money. No wonder we can't get enough ships!
Rant over.

I would suggest you're jumping the gun drew.

Rough figures of £60,000 a unit over a 25 yr mortgage gives you a cost of £200 a month with no interest to recoup the initial cost. This doesn't take into account any other costs for maintenance and repairs which might be included in the contract.

Without seeing the details of the contract and quotes, it's difficult to make an assessment and determine whether the MoD is being seen off.

You could find out under a FOI request.
