Interserve wins contract worth more than £2.5 million to build a Community and Water Sports Centre for the Armed Forces in Cyprus

Interserve, the international support services, construction and equipment services group, has won a contract worth more than £2.5 million to build a Community and Water Sports Centre for the Ministry of Defence.

The project is being funded from the LIBOR banking fines funding made available to the Ministry of Defence by the 2016 Autumn Statement which confirmed over £100 million of funding to support Armed Forces and Emergency Services charities and other related good causes.

The centre is being built at the Royal Air Force station Akrotiri, home of the Cyprus Operations Support Unit which provides joint support to British Forces Cyprus and operations in the region. The centre will be used by Armed Forces personnel and their families. Construction work – expected to last 12-months - starts in September.

Interserve provides a wide range of infrastructure support services to the UK Armed Forces’ four Permanent Joint Operating Bases (Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Cyprus and Ascension Island). The Company has held the Cyprus contract for more than a decade.

The Community and Water Sports Centre will be a free-standing single storey structure and includes a classroom, bar, eating area and changing facilities.

Interserve delivers estate and infrastructure services in Cyprus which enables the deployment of military capabilities from the British Forces Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas and United Nations Peacekeeping Force Cyprus in Nicosia. Interserve also provides support services across a diverse range of military facilities.

Brian Talbot, Interserve’s Managing Director, Defence, said: “We have a proven track record of working with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and we are proud of the work we do to support the Armed Forces. Our extensive defence facilities management expertise spans more than two decades and marks Interserve out as the market-leader in this sector.

“This contract win aligns with our strategy to develop long term relationships with clients such as the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.”
