Leaving a lasting legacy on a military site

Communication with the local community throughout a project can help solve any grievances easily and ensure a positive and enduring impression as a legacy.

All members of the workforce should be fully aware of the impact of good communication, information sharing and sensitivity to neighbours.

Below is an example of how a site effectively communicated with the local community and left a lasting legacy at this project on the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst:

  • An idea was put forward to produce a book that can be handed over to Sandhurst as a documentary record of the history of this Heritage building;
  • Progress on site was recorded photographically every day and these images which were in the book provide an accurate record of the start and completion of a project;
  • The first part of the book was used on Heritage Day, for the community to gain a visual understanding of the work going on under the scaffolding and montage that is around their beloved building;
  • The completed book will cover the past work history of the building along with archive material held in RMA Sandhurst museum;
  • Material used, problems solved,progress recorded, comments from visiting dignitaries and operatives who have worked on the project will also be included in the final book to be handed over to the commandant at RMA Sandhurst.
