Defence and security

Protecting us all

We are proud to be a trusted partner for some of the most complex and critical defence equipment and infrastructure programmes worldwide, giving our clients what they need to be operationally ready and effective.

Our team brings decades of specialist knowledge and experience. Our deep sector insight can efficiently develop best-in-class solutions that deliver value and certainty of outcome for mission-critical equipment, infrastructure, estates and nuclear licensed sites. We combine that with a focus on and commitment to technical and professional excellence, innovation, and improving outcomes for our clients and society.

Integrated design, engineering and management solutions

We provide our clients with integrated design, engineering and management solutions. We drive exemplar programme delivery and supply chain management, supplying portfolio, programme and project management, project controls, commercial management and cost management. We are world-class engineers who fully understand domestic and international design standards for defence. From concept to detailed design, we bring best practice from some of the world’s most significant infrastructure projects, with proven leadership in modern methods of construction, climate, carbon and nature – having developed industry standards in all areas. And we provide digital advice and solutions at an organisation, operation and project level.

Delivering true value

Across the defence sector and elsewhere, we work in ways that deliver value for everybody: for your organisation, taxpayers, society and the environment. We do this through:

Carbon net-zero and sustainability: We are committed to sustainability, including carbon net-zero, climate resilience and nature-based and regenerative solutions. We’ve developed industry guidance and standards for all three, and many of the world’s leading practitioners in those fields work for us. We apply this expertise across our defence portfolio. We co-authored, and are verified for, the carbon management specification PAS 2080:2023.

Digital transformation: We are committed to harnessing the power of digital to drive efficiency, make better decisions, and conceive system-based solutions to improve outcomes. We are digital by default, using the best tools on our clients’ projects, many of which are developed in-house. Our advisory services help our clients build their digital maturity and derive tangible benefits.

Industrialised construction: In defence, where there are similar requirements across projects, there is scope for scalable, repeatable solutions which reduce capital delivery cost and risk, whilst improving certainty and value. Our experts in design for manufacture and assembly and modern methods of construction helped craft The Value of Platforms in Construction and bring invaluable experience in meeting government policy.

Maximising social value: Defence and security sector programmes can be a means of realising social benefits. We bring about real change by embedding social outcomes through each step of the lifecycle and are proud to be the first engineering, management and development consultancy to be awarded the Social Value Management Certificate Level 1 by Social Value International (SVI).

Safety and wellbeing: We work closely with clients and partners to align and improve safety standards, and apply these across supply chains and the communities which defence programmes touch. Through an open and challenging approach, we foster a positive health, safety and wellbeing culture, ensuring our projects achieve long-lasting benefits while delivering value for money.

Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme gold award

We were awarded the MOD’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme gold award in July 2022. The scheme recognises organisations and businesses that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community. To achieve an award, an employer’s values must also be aligned with the Armed Forces Covenant. We received gold for our support to the whole service family, from recruiting and supporting service leavers, supporting reservists and cadet instructors with paid leave for training, and support to those who deploy on operations. We also work with others to support spouses and partners of military personnel looking for work, including through CV writing and interview techniques and the offer of employment.
