Asite will support Skanska in the delivery of the Vehicle Storage Support Programme (VSSP) for the Army’s land equipment fleet
Skanska UK, one of the UK’s leading contractors, has chosen Asite as its data management platform for 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 £259 million contract earlier this year by the Ministry of Defence (MoD), the British government department responsible for implementing the defence policy.
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.
Skanska chose the Asite Platform to support the delivery of the contract. Here, 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 to reduce carbon emissions on the project through the offsite manufacturing of key components that will be installed on-site.
“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,” said Pietro Leo, Asite VP of Operations, UK & Europe.
“This announcement follows Asite’s recent security accreditation, which enables Ministry of Defence information to be stored and processed through our 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.
