A new facility for the military’s Canine Training Squadron (CTS) is designed to meet the training and welfare needs of the military’s highly skilled working dogs and their handlers while also protecting the planet.  


The new carbon neutral state-of-the-art facility will minimise environmental impact and is rated excellent using Defence Related Environmental Assessment Methodology.  

Key elements include:  

  • The facility generates its own power using solar panels and an intelligently controlled air source heat pump keeps the building warm 
  • A heat recovery system ensures that heat produced is drawn out via a ventilation duct and filtered to offices and training facilities 
  • A greywater harvesting system collects waste water and reduces mains water usage by up to 60% The adoption of the ‘GliderBIM’ common data environment gives all parties access to live data. 

This allows for optimum ongoing maintenance and warranty management and minimises future costs.
