Under the Project Allenby/Connaught contract held with the MOD since 2006, KBR Aspire Defence builds and maintains single living, working and technical accommodation at British Army garrisons across Salisbury Plain Training Area and at Aldershot. The company is currently delivering new infrastructure to support the Army Basing Programme, which involves the return of Service personnel from Germany in summer 2019 and numerous Unit moves within the UK.
Baroness Scott of Bybrook OBE, leader of Wiltshire Council said: "We are delighted to be announcing KBR Aspire Defence as a Platinum Sponsor of Armed Forces Day National Event in Salisbury. I would like to thank KBR Aspire Defence for joining us as a key sponsor and for their support of this wonderful event which celebrates and says thank you to our armed forces for the vital role they perform in protecting us and our country."
"KBR Aspire Defence has a long track record of delivering high quality services to the UK's Armed forces and throughout the contract we have been thoroughly engaged with the local community and have worked closely with the MoD and local stakeholders," said Andrew Barrie, Head of KBR's Government Services division.
"That's why we are absolutely delighted to be working in partnership with Wiltshire Council to deliver this event which is our way of saying a huge 'thank you' to our Armed Forces for all that they do," he added.
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community – from current serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. Armed Forces Day nationally takes place on the last Saturday in June, this year it is on 29 June with the national event being held in Salisbury. Celebrations begin on Monday 24 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and landmarks across the country. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for troops and their families.
