Modulek helps RMA – The Royal Marines Charity, Lympstone get a firm footing for 2023.
Leading true hybrid construction company Modulek was delighted to attend the official opening of RMA – The Royal Marines Charity’s new building on the 13th of July.
The new CHAMP building will house the charity’s service staff and provide a unification of support at the camp.
The Charity’s Chair of Trustees, Mrs Lynn Fordham explained how vital such provision is:
” It is important that the Charity’s teams are located within the Camp as so many of the Royal Marines family we support are either based at CTCRM or travel through regularly. The Charity’s activities on camp include direct support to those recruits who, for whatever reason, are unable to complete training; briefing serving ranks during all training courses and command courses, and to be available for staff and family members to drop in for advice and support, whether that be welfare, employment, education, fundraising, amenities or RMA membership and reunions.”
Modulek LTD became involved with the charity as there was an urgent need to replace its former home, a wooden hut dating back to WW2.
No longer fit for purpose and designated a danger, Modulek was drafted in to provide alternative facilities.
The current site required a full turnkey service, with Modulek providing demolition of the old site right through to service installation and landscaping of the new building.
Carried out within just 13 weeks and on budget, Modulek worked closely with RMA – The Royal Marines Charity to ensure the new building kept some of the charms of the old wooden hut, with a wooden cladding external finish.
Present at the opening ceremony, Major Mark Latham RM 2IC Support Wing & Officer Commanding Base Company, Commando Training Centre Royal Marines, added:
“This is an outstanding project, brought in within the timeline and potentially under budget. It is a very impressive building and a project that will allow the Charity to operate within a suitable and fitting environment. I, for one, am very impressed with how this project was managed and completed.”
