To do this, it has access to:
- vehicle lifts
- a spray booth
- a washing and drying area with a wastewater recovery facility
The staff who work here are trained mechanics and body repair specialists.
Foyer bar, Mess
The Foyer-Bar is a warm, friendly place where soldiers can meet up to chat and network.
A place for socialising and sharing, it is operated by a dynamic team of Palace Guards.
Located on the top floor of the barracks, it offers a panoramic view over the Principality and the Mediterranean.
The Company’s mess provides staff meals for the Palace Guards, offering a menu for soldiers and their families.
It provides logistical support during the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Historic Grand Prix and E-Prix events.
It is located within the barracks and has a professional kitchen run by civilian staff. It is managed under the leadership of a Palace Guard.
The role of the Initiatives and Events Unit is to propose activities and events for all soldiers and their families.
It negotiates discounted rates much like a works council would do, organises themed events that allow people to come together (Candlemas, Halloween, Christmas Tree), offers daytime activities (motorcycling, wakeboarding and skiing trips) and internal challenges (card tournaments) or evening events (raffles, picnics).
