Rollalong, a key supplier to Aspire Defence Capital Works, has won ‘Best Offsite Project of the Year’ at the Constructing Excellence South West Built Environment Awards.
The Award recognises the outstanding work carried out at Larkhill Garrison, to support ADCW’s delivery for the Army Basing Programme (ABP).
Rollalong is contracted by ADCW to manufacture and install single living modular accommodation, for soldiers rebasing under the ABP to garrisons across Salisbury Plain and at Aldershot. Around 2,500 bed spaces are being created to cater for troops returning from Germany in 2019 and units relocating within the UK.
The official ceremony took place on Friday 22 June in Bristol, where Rollalong’s award was accepted by Mark Duddy, ABP Programme Director. Mark then formally presented the award to Steve Chivers, Managing Director of Rollalong, and Bruce Dunford, Rollalong ABP Project Director, at Army Headquarters Andover on 19 July.
Steve said: “It is a great honour to receive this award and I am very proud of what we have achieved. Every project we deliver is a team effort and the award recognise the tremendous work that the entire team at Rollalong puts in, to deliver the best service to our clients.”
Mark said: “Rollalong and Aspire have done fantastic work at Larkhill and other ABP garrisons, to ensure we deliver the high standard of accommodation soldiers need and deserve. I am very pleased with the pace of progress and quality of delivery across all Project sites.”
Paul Dempster, Managing Director ADCW, added: “We are delighted that Rollalong has been recognised with this award. It is testament to the excellent working partnership between Aspire and our supply chain, which helps us ensure our construction programme stays on track and that we successfully deliver the new infrastructure required to help soldiers live, work and train.”
Rollalong has supplied offsite construction solutions for the ABP since 2006 from the state-of-the-art 11 acre manufacturing facility in Wimborne in Dorset.
