Construction begins on DIO’s new Whittington headquarters

Friday May 29th, 2020

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Kier have marked the start of construction work to create a new headquarters at the Defence Medical Services (DMS) Whittington site with a turf-cutting ceremony.Government Opportunities

DIO awarded a contract to Kier in February 2020 to carry out the work, which forms part of a wider £4-billion Defence Estate Optimisation Portfolio investment to modernise the Defence estate. DIO staff will share the site with those who already work at DMS Whittington.

The building is being constructed using a modular method, with modules being built elsewhere and transported to the Whittington site for installation. All those working on-site are taking safety extremely seriously and following the latest government guidance for construction.

DIO’s current headquarters, located in Sutton Coldfield. is set to be vacated by staff by Spring 2021.
