Project Hercules included the relocation of the British Army’s Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC) to Bassingbourn Barracks. The refurbishment work ahead of the relocation will allow the MTMC to be fully operational, with up to 1,000 staff and troops at peak times. The MTMC facilities at Bassingbourn Barracks play a vital role in the training of approximately 12,500 military personnel for operations abroad every year.
The project will include the refurbishment of some existing buildings including accommodation blocks, social facilities, offices, classrooms and training areas. The existing medical and dental centres will also be refurbished and two new training facilities will be constructed. These works will include infrastructure that will allow MTMC to train effectively in one location. This project also includes new build elements consisting of 2 new bespoke fit for purpose buildings including a DTA (dry training area) and an auditorium.
Jubb utilitsed their experience in similar projects to help derive cost effective solutions that met the users needs. The site was particularly challenging with various ground conditions and existing structures which made for many bespoke solutions.
