Relocation and Re-Purposing of Rollalong Modular Buildings – MOD Office Use
With redevelopment work underway at the MOD’s Barracks in Ludgershall, with plans for 246 new army family homes, Rollalong have assisted in creating space by relocating two of their existing modular buildings to Barracks in South Cerney.
Included within the relocation project was refurbishment and conversion of bedrooms into office space, under DIO design guidelines.
The relocation project involved transporting the modular units a distance of 36 miles, combining two buildings into one larger structure and significant internal work. This highlights the flexibility provided by a Rollalong modular building – and has provided fast track office accommodation for the MOD.
Rollalong recently handed over the 18-bay building for use at Duke of Gloucester Army Barracks complete with new floor coverings and decoration throughout, as well as updating the fire alarm and lighting installations to meet current BAFE certification requirements.
A 14 module and a 9 module accommodation unit were combined into one larger 18 module building. Rollalong focused on utilising the most suitable sections of each building to create office space complete with WC’s, kitchenette, shower room and stores. Each single living bedroom was converted into 2 person offices, with a number of existing bedrooms combined to form larger meeting rooms and open plan offices.
On 25th October, Rollalong were invited to attend the official building opening. Lieutenant Colonel C G Munce MBE RLC Commanding Officer and Mr Barry J Ray, ABP Delivery Team South Lead unveiled the building plaque and commented on the speed and quality of the delivery.
