Landmarc Support Services has won a new contract with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to manage its National Training Estate Prime contract over a new five-year term.
The £322 million contract runs until 2019, with an option to extend for up to a further five years.
It is one of the first of the Next Generation Estate Contracts (NGEC) to be awarded by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), the MoD's property and services provider.
Landmarc will deliver all the services required to ensure that military units undertaking training are successfully booked in, accommodated, fed, refuelled and provided with safe and functional training facilities throughout their stay.
This includes office and accommodation services, planned and preventative maintenance, catering, cleaning, vehicle maintenance, logistics, the operation and maintenance of training areas and ranges and maintenance of targetry equipment, both in the UK and at overseas locations.
Landmarc will also ensure that the MoD's wider obligations as steward of conservation areas, protected species and heritage assets are met through a range of specialist rural estate and land management services.
The contract is a continuation of one originally won in 2003 to support the DIO to manage military training facilities across the MoD's 190,000-hectare UK training estate.
The new contract also incorporates more than 30 extra sites including the specialist electronic warfare range at RAF Spadeadam, the air weapons ranges and training facilities at Bovington and Lulworth, as well as Ballykinler and Magilligan in Northern Ireland.
Adrian Ringrose, chief executive of Interserve, said: "For the past decade Landmarc has worked in partnership with DIO to support the vital training that is needed to prepare Britain's Armed Forces for operational success as well as supporting the rural communities that live and work around the estate."
