Mountjoy has been awarded its first contract with Landmarc, a property manager for the Ministry of Defence, to provide refurbishment services at Longmoor Training Camp near Liphook.

Longmoor Training Camp has a rich military history spanning back to the early 20th Century, where it formerly housed the 79 Railway Squadron along with other members of the Royal Engineers. Its railway, which was built for training soldiers on railway construction and operations, previously connected the camp to the mainline rail network. This was eventually closed in 1969.

The project at Longmoor involves the re-commissioning and refurbishment of ex-married quarter domestic dwellings, which have become dilapidated since the camp’s declining use. The camp will now become home to a modern urban training centre.

Works began in December 2016, with completion planned for March 2017.

Andy Flambard, Operations Director at Mountjoy, said on the win: “I am delighted that we have been awarded this prestigious and high profile MOD contract and especially look forward to the challenges that a new market sector will present for us.”
