£9.7m Construction Contract Awarded for Baker Barracks, Thorney Island


10 August 2016

The contract for the final phase of development at Baker Barracks has been signed by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Kier Group.

The contract, which will cover the building of a new training centre, armoury and office extensions at the West Sussex site, will see the latest construction work commence in October 2016.

These works are part of a wider upgrade of Baker Barracks with enabling works, a new perimeter fence and additional office space now complete and the delivery of new Single Living Accommodation due to be completed in September 2016, bringing the overall investment in the site to circa £27 million.

The infrastructure investment is part of the Army Basing Programme (ABP) which is providing the facilities the British Army needs to live, work and train in the UK as it returns from Germany, rebases across the UK and restructures to its future Army 2020 formations.
