Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced new government funding to upgrade 3,500 service homes as well as single living quarters.
Amey will carry out around three-quarters of this programme through its National Housing Prime Contract, while Landmarc will deliver new accommodation and facilities for the defence training estate, including replacing up to 30 WW2 accommodation blocks in Longmoor, Pirbright, Westdown, and Castlemartin Camps.
The investment is expected to sustain around 2,000 jobs through the work on housing improvements including plumbers, electricians, painters and decorators.
Upgrades will begin in late summer and will be delivered over a period of two years.
Sunak said: “Over the last four years £530m has been invested in improvements to Service Family Accommodation.
“The additional £200m funding package will continue to improve the standard of both homes for Service families and single living accommodation on military bases.”
The work will also make UK Armed Forces estates more environmentally friendly.
New windows and doors will provide better insulation, energy-efficient boilers will drive down bills, and solar panels and electric vehicle charging points will reduce the carbon footprint.
