Our History

2023 marks 20 years since we set out on our unique mission to provide support services to the Armed Forces.

In 2003, against the backdrop of the Iraq War, Team Landmarc set out on a mission to provide the Armed Forces with an unrivalled training experience.

The later conflict in Afghanistan became a pivotal moment in Landmarc history. The creation of replica Afghan villages gave frontline troops the opportunity to prepare for deployment in a realistic environment and received the Judges Special Recognition Award at the 2010 British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) Awards (now IWFM).

Fast forward to 2014 and our growth continued as we took responsibility for 30 new sites including state-of-the-art Air Weapons Ranges and armoured ranges along the south coast.

Later investment in Urban Training Areas enabled soldiers to train for complex and challenging scenarios including counter-terrorism operations within the UK.

The outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 saw Team Landmarc step up and support the military’s COVID response. This work was awarded a Rapid Response and Resilience Award from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Defence training is not always for the battlefield. Over the last few years, we have been proud to provide support for troops preparing for high-profile events including the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the State funerals of HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Phillip.

Extreme weather events have also tested our teams, as well as challenges within the natural environment, such as the spread of Ash Dieback disease in our forests, with Landmarc teams across the nation involved in protective measures and clean up operations.

Currently, we are operating at high capacity and high tempo as we support British troops training Ukrainian Forces.

The last two years have seen record levels of investment in programme delivery on the Defence Training Estate (DTE), delivering projects to improve facilities for training troops.


The joint Landmarc and Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) Defence Training Estate team receive a DIO Excellence Award in the category of Resilience and Rapid Response for their “outstanding work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic”.


When Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, sadly passed away, teams at camps across the Southeast mobilised at pace to prepare for the surge in troops arriving to rehearse for the Ceremonial Funeral, an event on a scale that our nation has not seen in more than a generation.
