Relocated from lodgings at Brompton Barracks in Chatham, this brand new facility is a unique venture, as the site is shared by both Army and Royal Navy Reserves, which benefits both units in terms of recruitment and training provisions.

 

maber worked with both SERFCA and Royal Navy to provide offices, conference facilities, multi-media training classrooms, locker and changing rooms. The Royal Navy presence on the predominantly Army site is enhanced by the bold blue theme of the building exterior, providing Medway Tender with a contemporary, dynamic building.
