Defence

We have extensive experience of managing the unique interfaces and programming considerations of designing, constructing and commissioning multi-disciplinary facilities on ‘live’ operational sites for the Ministry of Defence.

Our teams have developed an excellent record of delivery across the defence sector. At Portsmouth Naval Base, we are constructing the base porting infrastructure to allow the Royal Navy’s two aircraft carriers: HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Queen Elizabeth to berth securely and safely.

Our portfolio of defence sector work is not restricted to the British Isles; we have improved critical infrastructure at Mare Harbour on the Falkland Islands.

We have a well-earned reputation for successfully completing technically challenging projects including the design, construction and commissioning of naval base infrastructure, moving bridges and linkspans, lock gates and tidal barriers.

High profile projects

High profile projects include long-term maintenance of the Thames Barrier, construction of an offshore ammunitions facility for Type 45 warships, and reconstruction of berthing facilities for the new QEC Aircraft Carriers at HMNB Portsmouth.

We have a strong track record of delivering demanding, high quality projects in restricted ‘live’ environments with close stakeholder involvement, where managing complex logistics and challenging operational requirements are vital.

We deliver turnkey solutions on new build, refurbishment and fit out projects.  Building types include maintenance depots and logistics facilities, aircraft hangars, accommodation blocks, offices and training facilities.

Our experience includes installation of utilities infrastructure at military facilities including:

  • substations
  • cabling
  • pipelines
  • specialist MEICA equipment (transformers, rotary frequency convertors and highly sophisticated ship-to-shore mechanical boom system at HMNB Portsmouth)
