Skanska has chosen Asite as the data management platform for the British Army’s Vehicle Storage Support Programme

The Vehicle Storage Support Programme will see Skanska and MACE (the Technical Services Provider) deliver sustainable and effective storage and maintenance solutions for the British Army’s land equipment fleet.

The Ministry of Defence awarded the £259m contract earlier this year to Skanska.

The facilities will create a sustainable way of maintaining and protecting British Army equipment

The contract will involve demolishing 58 buildings, constructing 12 new buildings, refurbishing one existing facility, and renewing site-wide infrastructure.

Work is due to begin on-site in Autumn 2022, with demolitions starting in September to enable the site’s regeneration.

All construction activity is expected to be completed by 2027, when the Ashchurch site will provide Controlled Humidity Environment (CHE) storage for 4,100 vehicles.

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’s five-year contract with Skanska will see the Asite Platform drive delivery of the Vehicle Storage Support Programme

Skanska will utilise the Asite Common Data Environment (CDE), Field Management, and Tender Management solutions to achieve its digital strategy. This will allow Skanska to increase collaboration, streamline processes and enhance data security across the programme.

Pietro Leo, Asite VP of operations, UK & Europe, commented:

“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.”

“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.“

In March 2022, Asite became one of the only software platforms for the built environment to achieve the prestigious accreditation issued by the Cyber Defence and Risk (CyDR) Team.

The accreditation enables MOD data at the ‘Official Tier’ (including ‘Official Sensitive’) to be stored and processed with an acceptable level of risk, ultimately providing Asite customers with the highest level of security for their data.

Using the Asite Platform on the VSSP will support Skanska in achieving one of their key project goals of DREAM Excellent—the defence estate environmental assessment standard.
