Skanska lands £295m defence deal on British Army


Skanska lands £295m defence deal

Skanska build new storage buildings, workshops and an office, along with all the necessary mechanical and electrical engineering services, at the army's vehicle base in the west of England.


Skanska’s programme of works includes the demolition of 58 buildings, construction of 12 new buildings and the refurbishment of one existing facility. It will also renew all site infrastructure.


The project aims to achieve DREAM Excellent – the defence estate environmental assessment standard – helped by the use of offsite construction.


The assignment builds on Skanska’s delivery of the Worthy Down tri-forces training facility in Hampshire for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation last year.

Work is due to begin in the summer, with completion targeted before the end of 2026.
