EventMAP’s utilisation studies and modelling expertise supports the delivery of a new MoD-wide Estate Strategy.

The MoD provides the defence capability for the UK and acts as a specialist training supplier for service people across all of the three armed services.

The Challenge

EventMAP were approached by one of our commercial partners to undertake a comprehensive series of utilisation surveys of the MoD’s estate portfolio across the UK. The MoD, like other government departments needed to move closer in compliance to the Government’s target utilisation for government departments, set to drive efficiency through increased occupancy. The MoD needed to initiate a process of estate optimisation, both to meet these estate benchmarks and to target cost reduction against a background of reducing central government departmental funding allocations. The MoD had scored poorly in previous surveys and needed to find a way to make significant improvements.

The MoD, as a whole, was undergoing a significant period of transformation to align a vast estate portfolio with its current and future operational requirements in an effective and efficient way. The resultant change planned to deliver improved performance and efficiency across their estate through greatly improved utilisation.

The Solution

To create a basis of data and support a new Estate Footprint Strategy for the MoD leading to cost savings through disposals of buildings and land, and to support the delivery of fit for purpose operational estate against falling budgets for defence spending. EventMAP developed and delivered over 30 utilisation studies for the MoD both in HQ buildings and training school facilities, barracks and depots to enable the business case to be drawn up for the future use of the fixed estate.
