Full project details

Introducing a new paradigm of construction at one of the MoD’s tactical nerve centres.

A 180-bed living accommodation and mess, extensive office space, Global Operations Security Control Centre (GOSCC), sports facilities, 1,200 parking spaces, an armoury, substantial stores and vehicle maintenance facilities. 

Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA)

Corsham represented a significant turning point in the implementation of our DfMA strategy – introduced as an alternative to conventional construction methodologies. This innovative approach brought significant programme, safety, quality and environmental benefits to the project. 

Clear and defined benefits

DfMA solutions included bathroom pods, walls, panelised cladding and stairs – equating to 10% less onsite labour, 20% programme reduction and an accident frequency rate of zero after more than 1.6 million hours worked. By using resilient materials, whole-life savings are being evidenced through reduced maintenance costs and energy consumption; we used exposed concrete walls and soffits to garner the benefits of thermal mass and airtightness.
