Work starts on kitchen and dining area at Nescliff
Work has begun on a new kitchen and dining area at Nescliff training camp near Shrewsbury.
The new state-of-the-art kitchen and dining facility will allow personnel at the training camp to have an extra space to relax thanks to a £4million investment. The new building will be completed by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), Landmarc Support Services Ltd and local contractors Pave Aways Ltd.
The facility will be able to feed 600 people at a time and 200 armed forces personnel in the field. The building will be designed with the latest thermal insulation and photovoltaic roof panels and will include disabled access and additional recreational and storage space.
DIO Training Safety Officer, Major (Ret’d) Richard Slaney, said: “DIO supports our armed forces by providing what they need to live, work and train. Nesscliff is a core site for military training within the West Midlands and surrounding counties, dealing with all priority military units’ pre-operational training.”
“With the changes in regular army basing and the increase in UK-based troops, the new kitchen and dining facility will allow Nesscliff to support the inevitable increase in use, whilst providing the high quality service troops expect and deserve.”
The buildings are designed to have a long lifespan and reduce the need for regular maintenance. This is in support of the MOD Sustainability strategy aimed at reducing maintenance and utility costs.
