RMA Lympstone

The Lympstone-based Royal Marines Charity was in urgent need of a new building to replace their current 1940s wooden hut that was no longer fit for purpose. Delivered in just 13 weeks and within budget, Modulek delivered a building in keeping with the tradition of the previous wooden hut style that will support service users and provide a centralised area for charity staff to work from.

A full turnkey service was provided for this project. 

Demolition and removal of the old wooden hut was also necessary, the new installation was erected in the same location as the old Commando building. Disabled access was a requirement as well as internal configuration that could house the charities Health & Wellbeing, Fundraising, Communications, Membership and Operations services. 

Keen to keep some part of the heritage of the old 1940s Commando building, the building’s exterior is reflective of the old ‘wooden hut’ with external wooden cladding used.




Major Mark Latham RM 2IC Support Wing & Officer Commanding Base Company, Commando Training Centre Royal Marines: “This is an outstanding project, brought in within the timeline and potentially under budget. It is a very impressive building and a project that will allow the Charity to operate within a suitable and fitting environment. I, for one, am very impressed with how this project was managed and completed.”
