Building work has commenced at Altcar Training Camp as part of a 10 month project which will see NW RFCA headquarters staff move into a new two storey office building located near the main entrance of the camp.
The office will be a modern and eco-friendly building (footprint c400sq metres) with an associated car park (footprint c600sq metres); which will provide an enduring base for our ongoing work in support of the Reserve and Cadet forces in the region. The move comes as part of an ongoing project to relocate into a sustainable building for the future. The project is completely self-funded and will reduce the financial burden imposed on the association and freeing more resources to the benefit of the Reserve and Cadet estate in the region.
Whitfield & Brown Limited are the appointed construction and development company, based locally in Cheshire. Within the North West they have a robust and balanced supply chain who contribute to ensuring NW RFCA receive the correct service. A prerequisite of the project is that the contractors must ensure the supply chain used is at least 80% within the North West of England.
The building work commenced on the 21 October and is expected to be completed by the end of July 2020. For regular project updates, please view our infrastructure webpage.
