Skanska has been awarded a £196 million contract by Eastbury Park Limited to provide facilities management to the Ministry of Defence at Northwood HQ in Hertfordshire.
The 13-year contract will, under a private finance initiative, see Skanska deliver all non-military support activities on the site until 2031.
Service provision through the contract includes all FM services, such as buildings maintenance, grounds maintenance and IT communications infrastructure support.
Northwood HQ is made up of the UK military headquarters, NATO maritime headquarters and an EU operations headquarters.
About 2,500 military personnel work on the site - and more than 850 of them live on the base.
