Kier Construction was appointed to construct the new head office of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), purpose-built to accommodate more the 550 Ministry of Defence staff following the closure of DIO’s former building in Sutton Coldfield. The new DIO building not only offers a modern working environment but has also been designed to reduce carbon contribution through the use of renewable energy, low water usage systems, improved insulation, and EV charging points.
Graham Dalton, DIO’s Chief Executive, said:
“DIO’s new head office is a flagship building for Defence. It demonstrates how we can use building design to enable our people to work in a modern, flexible way. And it demonstrates how we can use a smaller footprint and modern designs to minimise energy use – bringing a new standard of sustainability to Defence infrastructure.”
RLW Roofing was responsible for the supply and installation of a Bauder hot melt roofing system.
