East African Standby Brigade – Under the IGAD Agreement the East African Standby Brigade has been established with the Planning Element (PLAN ELM) being hosted by the Kenya Government in Nairobi. The British Government have assisted the Kenya Army by funding the construction of the Planning Element Headquarters at Karen in Nairobi.
Triad were commissioned by the British Peace Support Team to undertake the design and management of the project which included extensive investigations into facilities elsewhere in the world and Triad designed the Planning Element including the relocation of the Motor Transport Section for the DSC, detailed and arranged the equipment of the project, which was delivered in June 2005. The project was constructed in twenty weeks and was handed over fully equipped, with office furniture and computer systems in place. Triad also managed training functions for the computer system.
The project provides accommodation for some fifty officers and senior NCOs with capacity to expand the staff complement during exercises and when the Planning Element becomes fully operational.
