Capita Symonds has been selected to design a new £22M rehabilitation centre in Plymouth for injured servicemen and women.
The city council is set consider the plans for a new purpose-built Personal Recovery Unit (PRU) at HMS Drake in Devonport Naval Base.
Armed forces charity Help for Heroes has pledged a minimum of £10M to the project.
When the facility is complete it will have a four-storey, 72-bed accommodation block along with six family suites for visiting relatives, classrooms, communal facilities and interview rooms.
This planning application is the first phase of a two-tiered plan, which will involve a further application being made later this year for a swimming pool, consultation rooms and other services.
Help for Heroes co-founder Bryn Parry said: “The intention is to create a recovery centre where guys can go after receiving initial treatment at Headley Court.
“There are a lot of people whose injuries are very severe. We need to create a place where these guys can go and recover in a military environment. It will not be a convalescent home, it will be a place of opportunity.”
This project is the latest in a run of good news for Capita Symonds after it reported a 20% rise in 2010 revenues to £309M, compared to £258.1M in 2009.
The firm also revealed underlying profits were up 11% to £25.6M, compared to £23.1M in 2009.
