HMS Nelson Falklands Building

Name: HMS Nelson Falklands Building

Location: Portsmouth

Total Value: £13.85 million

Project Start: September 2017

Works Duration: 16 weeks

Description:

New £15m living accommodation for military personnel has been officially opened at Portsmouth Naval Base after SSH completed the final handover clean.

The 270-bed Falklands Block was opened by Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Sir Phil Jones – one of only a small number of Falklands veterans still serving in the RN. The name of the block came out top in a vote involving junior ratings at the Naval Base – the poll coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Falklands campaign.
