                       Commercial Agreement with BAA plc


    Asite plc awarded e-business framework agreement and involvement in all

                     BAA plc upcoming construction projects



Asite plc ('Asite') has been awarded a framework agreement to supply Internet
based project collaboration services to BAA plc ('BAA'). The deal means that BAA
will support all its future construction projects through Asite, and reflects
BAA's drive to improve the efficiency of its construction projects using
e-business solutions.

Mathew Riley, BAA commercial director for Terminal 5 and a non-executive
director of Asite, said: 'Over the last year Asite has delivered significant
time and cost benefits to our projects, typically reducing out-turn costs by 2%.

As a direct result of these benchmarked figures we are now rolling out Asite
solutions across all future projects. This will deliver predictable savings in
the region of £8 million across our projected capital expenditure for 2003.

Predictability is critical for BAA and our quest to achieve world-class results
through our supply chain. The fact that previous Asite projects for BAA have hit
delivery targets on time and under budget is proof of Asite's added value to our
business.

Asite has demonstrated an understanding of the technical and, more importantly,
the cultural issues around process change. That sets them apart from other
technology businesses.'

Within its overall package of services to BAA, Asite is currently deploying
collaboration solutions on several airport schemes, including the innovative £30
million toilet refurbishment programme and the pier segregation projects aimed
at increasing security at BAA airports, each of which is worth in excess of £20
million.
