Landmarc Support Services (Landmarc) has been awarded an extension to its National Training Estate Prime (NTEP) contract with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) until 31 October 2021.
The contract covers Landmarc's partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to manage and operate military training facilities across the MoD's 190,000 hectares of built and rural UK Defence Training Estate, a position the company has held since 2003.
To support about seven million training days a year, Landmarc will carry out services including management and operation of training areas and ranges, explosives safety, built and rural estate management, sustainability services involving environmental and conservation support, catering, information and administration, and project and commercial property management.
This covers about 120 sites, including nearly 9,000 buildings and almost 7,500 pieces of targetry issued worldwide.
Mark Neill, managing director at Landmarc, said: "For more than 15 years, we have partnered with DIO to ensure that the UK Defence Training Estate delivers a safe and sustainable place to train for our armed forces. This extension will enable us to continue the great work we have been doing with our customer to drive innovation in the way services are delivered to ensure our military achieves its training mission."
Landmarc is a joint venture that comprises Interserve Group Limited and North American firm PAE.
Debbie White, Interserve's chief executive officer, said: "Our experience and capabilities make us uniquely equipped to meet the varied and changing facilities management requirements of the Armed Forces across the defence estate.
"This extension illustrates our ability to deliver complex facilities management contracts that create value for our customers. We are proud to be a major provider of support services to the Ministry of Defence, supporting end-users such as soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines to continue serving our country."
