Building defence

The VSSP will see Skanska and the technical services provider, MACE, provide modern, sustainable, and effective storage and maintenance solutions for the British Army’s land equipment fleet. Skanska was awarded the £259 million contract earlier this year by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The contract will involve a complex programme; including demolishing 58 buildings, constructing 12 new buildings, refurbishing one existing facility, and renewing site-wide infrastructure. Once completed, the modern facilities will create a sustainable and safe way of maintaining and protecting British Army equipment and its vehicle fleet.

“Asite is incredibly excited to strengthen its partnership with Skanska by supporting this landmark project. With its advanced document management solution and ability to support projects across their lifecycle, Asite is a perfect fit for this large-scale, complex project. This announcement follows Asite’s recent security accreditation, which enables MOD information to be stored and processed through its cloud platform – a key requirement for Skanska and this project,” explains Pietro Leo, Asite VP of Operations, UK & Europe.

Work is due to begin on-site in the autumn, with demolitions starting in September to enable the site’s regeneration. All construction activity is expected to complete by 2027.
