The projects have a combined value of £8m and include the construction of a physical & recreational training centre (P&RTC) and a health & dental centre at Bulford, Salisbury.

These schemes involve the demolition of a number of buildings on site to make way for the new facilities. ISG will also refurbish an existing swimming pool, upgrading it with modernmechanical and electrical services, and then incorporate it into the new building. The two-storey steel frame P&RTC building will feature facing brickwork, render and aluminium curtain walling to its façade.

The P&RTC is scheduled for completion in December 2012 and the health & dental centre is due to complete in January 2012.

These wins are the latest in a series of construction projects carried out by ISG as part of Aspire Defence’s eight-year construction programme, with around £60m worth of schemes already delivered by the contractor over the past three years.

ISG southwest managing director John Rawlinson said: “The ability to work effectively within a highly specialised and restricted environment is essential for the successful delivery of our projects across the Aspire Defence construction programme. The sites that we manage on Salisbury Plain are remote, which presents logistical challenges. However three years of learned experience across the contract have resulted in our acute understanding of the Carillion and KBR joint venture’s process-driven approach, furnishing the business with the expertise to ensure consistent project delivery.”
