Catterick Garrison

Galliford Try delivered the £49m reconfiguration of the Marne and Bourlon barracks on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), at one of the British Army’s key locations.

The barracks at Catterick Garrison formed one of the key steps of the Army Basing Programme (ABP) which is providing the necessary facilities the Army needs to live, work and train in the UK as it returns from Germany and rebases across the UK.

The redevelopment programme included the new Officers' and Junior Ranks' single living accommodation. A new mess was created for Senior Non-Commissioned Officers, as well as a new Quartermaster department and armoury.

As part of the Bourlon barracks refurbishment, new administration facilities were created, including the conversion of the Grade II-listed Sandhurst block into a new office space having stood empty for eight years.

At Marne barracks new physical training facilities were added with the construction of new gymnasium, while externally, a modern multi-use games area was installed.
