Defence Estates has recently commenced an innovative partnership with the private sector, using the locked-in value of its estate to deliver new facilities at a core site within a tightly managed programme.
The principles of the innovative Project MoDEL delivery programme can be replicated across many other areas of the public sector estate.
Partnerships UK, which co-sponsored Defence Estates in the procurement, has produced this summary to help public authorities understand MoDEL and consider whether a similar approach might be appropriate for them.
The project arose from a strategic review of the Ministry of Defence Estate in London (MoDEL). It involves new investment in a core site at MoD’s West London Airfield at Northolt, relocation of personnel from six sites elsewhere in London and the subsequent disposal of the surplus land.
The rationalisation project will deliver a range of financial and operational benefits to MoD, including the upgrading of accommodation, improvement in operational capability and efficiency savings from moving multiple sites onto a single core location.
