Appendix 3: Dwellings comprising Defence Estates SLAM blocks: disaggregation

1.0 Defence Estates SLAM blocks

This subject was introduced in CT IA 081015 081015-ct-ia. The acronym SLAM stands for Single Living Accommodation Modernisation. CEO held talks with Defence Estates (DE) in late 2008 to identify and agree the approach to apply to SLAM blocks to identify the number of dwellings applying the principles of disaggregation.

CEO were provided with a complete list of designs (called a SOLUTIONS LIBRARY) in A4 format. These have been studied and conclusions drawn for each case.

Where Units are asked to band SLAM blocks, it is vital that the particular Type (design) of the modular block and the number of floors within the block are ascertained. Providing this information is to hand, no internal inspection should be required.

2.0 Different Types

10 different Types were examined and the basic details of each design studied. The conclusions reached are set out in the table above and will form the agreed basis on which to band the SLAM block modular units. All SLAM developments should be one or more of the following Types. The table above summarises the conclusions and should be applied nationally.

3.0 Information for identification only

This guidance is simply to identify the number of dwellings within the blocks and not to suggest bands. That will be for LOs to decide on local evidence.

Where further information is required, e.g. a copy of the design types, or where the design type is known but no plan available locally, or where it is suspected that the particular design and layout may be different from those listed above, please contact the Head of CT Technical for further assistance.
