JRSLA LARKhill & warminster Rydon has carried out a number of projects to refurbish Junior Ranks Single Living Accommodation (JRSLA) on both the Larkhill and Warminster Garrisons on Salisbury Plain. Each building required reconfiguration, refurbishment and refitting over a demanding 24 week programme to reduce the number of bedrooms with communal washing and ablution facilities to form 48 en-suite bedrooms for the Junior Ranks. Both buildings were in extremely restricted locations adjacent to “live” accommodation blocks with limited space in which to operate. Reconfiguring the bedrooms on all floors required a significant amount of demolition of load bearing walls, involving extensive temporary supports restricting access for long periods. Modular bathroom pods were distributed throughout the building in flat-pack state before being erected once in their final positions.

Rydo n deliv was aske d to e simil r a furt he a Warm r project r three inst er Ga s at the rriso n.

Following from the success of delivering the two projects at Larkhill, Rydon was asked to deliver a further three similar projects at the Warminster Garrison.

As part of our framework agreement with Aspire Defence, we have been commissioned to refurbish Officers Mess buildings across a number of Army garrisons, many of which like Government House have carried Grade II Listed Building status.

Rydon constructed two new buildings for use by 22 Field Hospital at the Normandy Barracks over a programme period of 34 weeks. These buildings comprised technical deployable and additional secure storage areas to the perimeter of the buildings, with access by both vehicular and personnel doors.

Rydon carried out an extensive 24-week refurbishment and reconfiguration of existing buildings, creating offices for 6 Battalion REME at the Khandahar Barracks. The project also involved constructing a new mezzanine floor within the building to house additional armouries for 4 Battalion REME and the Signals.

The buildings also included a mix of cellular and open plan offices, a technical library and changing facilities.

The existing buildings under refurbishment were in constant occupation by the Army. The area was also an existing armoury, which required working in a phased 30 week programme in a particularly sensitive environment.

Both buildings were constructed in steel portal frame, a brick and cladding envelope and a metal profiled pitched roof. The buildings were Part M compliant and had under floor heating throughout.

At Travers Barracks, Aldershot Rydon stripped an existing storage facility of asbestos cladding, taking it back to the steel frame. Rydon also created an armoured vehicle workshop including new exhaust systems and services, inspection bays along with offices, stores and a conference facility.
