The Department uses two assessment methodologies to review the condition of 'mess accommodation' otherwise known as Single Living Accommodation (SLA).
Facilities Condition Management (FCM) assesses the fabric and services of all buildings across the Defence Estate. Specific to SLA, a Four Tier Grading system also measures accommodation against additional internal criteria. The combined results provide a more accurate assessment of the overall condition of the SLA.
The overall condition of the UK SLA estate is currently assessed as 'Fair' indicating that a proportion of the estate will require minor repairs and some infrequent larger repairs within three to five years. Each Service prioritises investment in their SLA based on the outcome of these assessments.
