New buildings for UK military bases
KBR has announced that its Aspire Defence joint venture will design and build an additional 130 buildings in support of the UK Ministry of Defence’s Army Basing Programme. The order comes under its existing Project Allenby/Connaught contract.
The new buildings will be built at various UK military garrisons in the South of England. Once complete they will be included within the existing estate for which KBR is responsible for providing operational support and facilities management. The types of services provided range from catering and cleaning to technical stores management and tailoring of uniforms, from the provision of transport to administration support.
The Allenby/Connaught project is a private finance initiative (PFI) contract that will run until 2041.The first wave of construction under the project was completed in 2014. This latest round of work is expected to be delivered by the summer of 2020.
Andrew Barrie, head of KBR's UK government services business, said: ‘KBR has spent the past ten years delivering this flagship programme for the British Army to re-house soldiers into modern, state-of-the-art accommodation and working facilities, delivering on our commitment to make soldiers lives better, providing them with the high quality living and working standards that they deserve.
‘We are pleased that through the next four years of work we will continue to make modern facilities available to even more soldiers.’
