Description: To examine and implement the most effective way of closing Rhine Garrison and Munster Station in Germany by: - moving HQ Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (ARRC), 16 Sig Regt and 1 Armoured Division Signal Regiment (ADSR) to the UK; - streamlining the infrastructure delivery management in support of UK Defence personnel based in Germany and the European mainland; - utilising or releasing estate vacated in Germany as a result of the Strategic Defence and Security Review Preliminary Moves (i.e. Celle).
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: We remain on track to relocate the two Signal Regiments to Stafford from Germany in summer 2015. Construction work to redevelop Beacon Barracks and to build Service Families' Accommodation on MOD-owned land adjacent to the barracks has progressed relatively quickly and, in some cases, buildings are likely to be ready for handover ahead of schedule. The Amber/Green rating reflected the risks associated with the national shortages of construction trade workers and materials and the possibility of a severe winter that would hamper building works. In practice both of our contractors have managed the workforce and materials issues most effectively and the good Autumn and mild start to the Winter period has meant that any adverse weather now is likely not to significantly affect the build schedule.
Start date: 2006-08-31
End date: 2016-03-31
Schedule text: The delivery of living and working accommodation at Stafford for the two Signal Regiments relocating from Germany is on schedule, and in some cases, ahead of schedule. We have a detailed movements plan that will see the units relocate in Summer 2015 enabling us to close Elmpt and Herford Stations in Germany and hand them back to the German Federal authorities by the end of this calendar year.
Baseline: £161.10m
Forecast: £147.01m
Variance: -8.70%
Variance text: The variance was due to a combination of reduced expenditure in Germany, reduced costs for both Stafford construction projects, a reduction in bulk lease costs for the Stafford project and a reduction in manpower requirement for the Innsworth project against the original control total.
Whole Life Cost: £1,557.10m
WLCost text: Whilst we have adjusted our 10-year profile to reflect reductions in construction spend and to account for additional expenditure accruing in later years these changes remain within the approval limits for this Programme.
