Russell Roof Tiles Start on MOD Project
Russell Roof Tiles has been selected for its first Ministry of Defence (MOD) re-roofing project in Oxfordshire.
The manufacturer has created a specific delivery schedule to hit the extremely tight deadlines supplied by the main contractor, Amey. With an estimated date of Autumn 2021 for completion, the development is part of the Army Basing Programme (ABP) in Shrivenham, Oxfordshire.
Russell Roof Tiles has been involved in MOD projects including working with Lovell Partnerships Limited to deliver 917 homes for the MOD on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, as part of the £250 million development programme.
At the time, the manufacturer supplied £1 million worth of pitched tiles and accessories, it also supplied 350,000 Grampian tiles for 346 Service family homes as part of the £150 million Project Borona redevelopment of the MOD Stafford base that also saw new barracks being built along with new offices, workshops, shops and leisure facilities.
James Pendleton, Regional Sales Director at Russell Roof Tiles said: “This is the first re-roofing project we’ve delivered for the MOD in the South of country and we are proud to be involved in the project, ultimately improving the standard of living for troops returning to the UK.
“The Russell Roof Tiles team will utilise its expertise and knowledge working with Ministry of Defence and their contractors to deliver an efficient and high level of service as it is people’s current homes. We look forward to working closely with the team to meet these deadlines.”
The Army Basing Programme (ABP) is a £1.8 billion capital infrastructure programme, delivering Service Family Accommodation homes for Service personnel and their families, as well as refurbishing key infrastructure. It is providing the facilities to enable nearly 100 Army units to relocate, reconfigure, disband or re-role and deliver the Government’s Strategic Defence and Security Review commitment to bring all units back from Germany. This programme includes funding for accommodation improvements and will provide about 1,500 new homes for Service families, 4,500 new single living accommodation bed spaces and working, technical and training infrastructure.
