Public Sector and Defence

Our experience in the public and defence sectors has been gained over many years for a wide range of public, security, aviation, and maritime government bodies and defence related clients.

Due to the wide range of services we can offer which includes structural engineering, civil engineering, strategic planning, transport planning, ground engineering and flood and drainage management, we are able to support our clients by appreciating the specific demands of the sector and delivering carefully planned and considered design solutions. Having one company to coordinate these services with a single lead also enables greater collaboration and organisation for all parties.

Our work within the private sector also means we consistently consult and work alongside public bodies. This client-side interaction has helped develop our understanding of public body concerns and priorities, giving us an advantage as we can support any communication gap between the needs of the private market and the priorities for a public body.

Our experience of the defence sector has been gained over many years, providing design and consultancy advice to a wide range of defence related clients. This experience has enable our teams to develop detailed knowledge of the various procedures, approval processes, working practices and specific design standards within the sector. This includes site wide infrastructure and facilities incorporating counter terrorism measures, refurbishments and replacement of many operational buildings, workers accommodation, offices, medical and dental facilities and various training facilities.

Many of the projects which we have delivered in the past have been heralded by our Defence Estates clients as examples of best practice and has won awards for design.

Much of our public sector experience offers a crossover to other industry sectors, whereas our defence experience can be more focused to specific requirements.
