Skanska uses Asite to manage data on £259m British Army project

Skanska UK has chosen Asite as its data management platform as it works to deliver the Vehicle Storage Support Programme (VSSP).

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 £259m contract earlier this year by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The contract includes the demolition of 58 buildings, the construction of 12 new ones, and the refurbishment of one existing facility.

To support the delivery of the contract, Skanska will utilise the Asite Common Data Environment (CDE), Field Management, and Tender Management solutions to achieve its digital strategy.

Skanska also plans to use modern methods of construction (MMC) to reduce carbon emissions on the project through the offsite manufacturing of key components that will be installed on-site.

Pietro Leo, Asite VP of Operations, UK & Europe, said: “Asite is incredibly excited to strengthen our partnership with Skanska by supporting this landmark project.

“With its advanced document management solution and ability to support projects across their lifecycle, the Asite Platform is a perfect fit for this large-scale, complex project.

Asite recently achieved security accreditation, enabling the Ministry of Defence information to be stored and processed through its cloud platform – a key requirement for Skanska and this project.

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, when the Ashchurch site will provide Controlled Humidity Environment (CHE) storage for 4,100 vehicles.
