Morgan Sindall has been awarded a £20m deal from Defence Estates for the construction of new military buildings in Woolwich, south London, which will house Army horses.
The relocation of King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery from St John's Wood to Napier Lines, Woolwich, involves construction work for administrative, technical and equestrian accommodation.
The contract covers a mixture of refurbishment and new build, and the facilities will cater for a total of 171 personnel and 132 horses.
Morgan Sindall will also be required to build an indoor riding school, external menage, all weather trotting track, farrier's / blacksmith workshop, parade ground, sadler's shop, armoury and ammunition store.
The project will also involve infrastructure works including a link road across a public highway and site entrance works.
The facility is scheduled for completion in the final quarter of 2011.
