Client success

Concept stage for a £400m+ project

Background

Located in west Wiltshire, MOD Corsham is the product of a £690 million development project that was completed in 2011 and is home to the MOD’s Global Operations Security Control Centre (GOSCC) and Strategic Command’s (SC) Defence Digital (DD) department. The site is responsible for the design, development, acquisition and operation of information capabilities across Defence.

Overview

TRINITY, a £400m+ Category A centrally approved project, was reinitiated in April 2016 following an 18-month pause. Now subsumed within the MORPHEUS Programme – TRINITY is the capability project for the current in-service FALCON capability. On behalf of the TRINITY Project Director, we formed a team around the project to run the Concept Phase to secure Initial Gate Business Case (IGBC) approval to proceed to the Assessment Phase.

“IMD have supplied a perfect match of skills to budget ratio in an extremely austere climate. This high performing team has produced excellent results over a very short time and is performing above expectations, delivering more than the sum of the CVs alone would indicate.”
