Brogan Group have secured the Mast Climbing access package at HMS Nelson, the Royal Navy’s Portsmouth base.
Despite its nautical name, Nelson is a land-based fleet accommodation centre, where ratings are temporarily housed between spells afloat. The base also has a stable population of landlubbers, including maintenance engineers and other providers of support services.
Project Emma is a stand-alone prime contract to design, build and operate four accommodation blocks containing 584 bedrooms for junior ratings and a support services building. The development will form part of the MoD’s single-living accommodation project, which is intended to make military life more attractive to potential recruits by replacing barracks with private rooms.
