Briggs and Forrester Engineering Services have recently completed the MEP services contract for Aspire Defence Capital Works (ADCW) at the Larkhill Army base in Wiltshire, to support the Army Basing Programme (ABP).
As part of the ABP, around an additional 4,000 Service personnel and around 1,300 families moved to Wiltshire in 2019.
Wiltshire has a long association with the military which was further strengthened after the government announced in 2016 that, under the ABP, more Service personnel would be making Wiltshire their home. The ABP has boosted the economy in Wiltshire by creating jobs through the Aspire Defence construction supply chain and the facilities management services delivered on garrisons.
Working in collaboration with KBR-owned ADCW, Briggs & Forrester Engineering Services have delivered the MEP services contract to 15 new build assets at Larkhill Garrison. This includes Officers and Junior ranks’ Messes, technical stores, garages and offices.
Engineering Services commenced work in September 2018 and the project was completed in January 2020.
Richard Tindal, Project Director, Larkhill (ADCW) said: “I would like to take the opportunity to thank Briggs and Forrester for their collaborative approach, on what has been a long and complex project. Together we have delivered a first-class project, enabling the Army to relocate back from Germany during the summer of 2019, and supporting future military capability. I look forward to our relationship continuing into the future.”
