Kier Construction wins bid to build a new technical training college for the Ministry of Defence
Working through a 50:50 joint venture with Balfour Beatty, Kier Construction has managed to secure a contract for building and delivering the MoD’s new Defence College of Technical Training at the former RAF Lyneham airbase in Wiltshire, a recent news report has revealed.
The new college will provide training facilities in one location for all three Armed Forces – the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force – for the first time in the UK.
The scheme will provide single living accommodation for more than 1,100 trainees, purpose-built teaching facilities and a large outdoor training area. It also includes a public museum and a new home for the Army’s Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME).
Given the nature of the building and its future use, installing a solid and reliable access control system might be a very good idea, and this is specifically where Access Control UK could put its extensive experience to very good use.
Access Control UK employs a variety of access control technologies, including here RFID, to create advanced solutions, enable users to exert solid, reliable and accurate control over the access to specific premises or zones.
