The major project to develop and modernise the Ministry of Defence's HQ in Whitehall, London, was successfully delivered ahead of schedule by Skanska. MoD staff are now based in a modern working environment, suited to both the strategic needs of a 21st century Defence Department and facilitating more efficient and open ways of working.

Developing the projectThe £352 million project to redevelop the early 1950s one million square feet Grade 1 listed building included decanting over 3,000 MoD staff into four alternative premises, which themselves had to be refurbished first to enable work on the main MoD building to commence.
Constructing the projectThe £352 million project to redevelop the early 1950s one million square feet Grade 1 listed building included decanting over 3,000 MoD staff into four alternative premises, which themselves had to be refurbished first to enable work on the main MoD building to commence. Within the Whitehall HQ, interiors were stripped, upgraded and refurbished with areas of historic and architectural interest being protected and restored. All Mechanical & Engineering services were replaced with modern energy efficient installations and an extensive IT infrastructure was installed. The building can now accommodate 20 per cent more staff than before as open- plan areas, which maximise the use of floor space, replace the existing small modular offices.
