Aspire PFI, Project Allenby Connaught – Training buildings

Six training buildings ranging in size from 300 m² to 1250 m² were designed to provide training spaces. Most of the buildings are two -storey structures and have associated offices, workshops and storage buildings. Whilst looking cosmetically the same, these associated buildings have variations in terms of area or handing.

Most of the training buildings have lecture theatres attached. They also have direct classroom entry at ground level to allow for access to training vehicles placed outside.


Project Allenby, Connaught is the MoD’s redevelopment project for the Garrisons in Aldershot and around Salisbury Plain. The 35-year PFI contract has a capital value of more than £1.4 billion and a through life value of more than £8 billion.

The project is providing 360 new buildings and 155 refurbished buildings over a nine-year construction period to achieve a modern living and working environment, with associated support services for some 18,000 personnel.
