Having recently moved into the new Aliwal Barracks, 2nd Royal Tank Regiment soldier, Alex Truscott, has first-hand experience of the new living and working accommodation which Aspire Defence is building at garrisons across Salisbury Plain and at Aldershot.
“The new accommodation is excellent and is definitely the best I’ve had in my 11 years in the Army. Having your own bathroom gives you more personal space so it’s really easy to switch off after a hard day at work. I think it’s good to have that split between your work and home life and we still get the social aspect from our shared kitchen and the new cook house and bar,” Alex said.
“The new rooms are spacious and feel modern and comfortable – they’re really top notch. I use the gym regularly and the internet café is still popular although it’s great that we can now get broadband in our rooms.”
Alex is also pleased with the new working accommodation that has been created as part of Project Allenby/Connaught: “I now have an office which I share with a colleague. It has a much better feel to it and we’ve got far more storage space than before,” he added.
