Managing the Estate

West Midland Reserve Forces & Cadets Association (RFCA) manages a wide range of properties and facilities used by Reserves and Cadets in the West Midlands Region, known as the Volunteer Estate.

We provide a complete maintenance and management service to the customers that both occupy and administer the 145 individual locations.  We are responsible for these Reserve and Cadet centres on behalf of the Minister of State.

Army Reserve Centre on our Defence estate

There are 30 Reserve Force Centres in the West Midlands including one Royal Naval Reserve ship - HMS Forward, at which a Royal Marines Reserves Detachment is also based, 115 Cadet establishments including four Cadet Training Centres, and  five Army/RAF Career Centres.

Our service includes all essential maintenance and repairs, lease negotiations, disposals and acquisitions, as well as implementing a robust inspection regime at all of our locations ensuring that we meet our Health and Safety obligations. We have designed and project managed multi-million pound builds and full refurbishments of both Reserve and Cadet locations.

Working with West Midland RFCA

We work with a range of different contractors to progress projects and to ensure our estate is operating in a safe and compliant way. To work with us all contractors must be registered with Construction Line, with a minimum of Silver membership.
