During time at Elior, the Defence Contracts sector had acquired several areas of new business had been acquired with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for contract catering on sites. Previously run by another contract caterer, the general look of the acquired facilities suffered many years of neglect and required a fresh look to bring all catering sites into the 21st Century.
Throughout the MoD camp sites in the East Midlands, Kent and 43 Wessex areas, the focus was mainly catering for the Junior Ranks dining rooms. However, within some of these sites featured bar areas, local retail stores, officers’ messes, with one sizeable site featuring a bowling alley. All acquired site spaces differed in sizes and proportions, which also needed to be taken into consideration for major internal renovations.
