Sector expertise

Defence and security

Secure and steadfast in our delivery within complex environments.

We bring fresh thinking and a new approach to the sector, building on our skills and expertise in delivering complex projects and programmes.  Our approach is to complement our clients’ skills and experience by offering services that drive for better value and efficiencies in their capital spend through improved service delivery.

We advise on both physical and non-physical requirements, where the security measures should be incorporated and how to introduce, install, operate and manage any technology and processes to control or prevent threats and attacks.

What we offer

We offer a range of services that span the management of physical infrastructure by working in integrated teams to support service delivery, including programme and project management, management and commercial services. We bring over two decades’ experience of delivering complex projects securely, safely, on time and within budget.

Our work varies from Defence Equipment & Support in the UK as their commercial delivery partner, supporting them to provide commercial and procurement outcomes for the armed forces, to the Australian Department of Defence (DoD), providing programme controls and are undertaking a complex, challenging and completely new service delivery approach designed to transform the way services are provided while delivering sustainable quality and value for money outcomes. 

Our secure construction team, MSecure, provides an integrated security service with the expertise to provide critical assessments across both cyber and physical security, delivering bespoke, holistic solutions to clients in the private and public sectors. Through MSecure we provide consultancy, construction, engineering and fit out services to clients for whom the protection of assets and facilities is a priority. This encompasses organisations operating across both the public and private sectors. We build and deploy unique, integrated supply chains and work with clients and alongside design teams to incorporate security resilience and frameworks at the design stage of a new build or refurbishment. This saves time, resource, and subsequent costs for both clients and tenants over the lifecycle of a building or scheme.

We work with UK and international governments, police forces and court houses, military institutes and on nuclear-licensed sites. We deliver embassies, airport projects, research centres, secure warehousing, data centres and gated accommodation, as well as complex construction projects to tight programmes, primarily in highly secured areas and locations and often when the buildings are still occupied and in use.

Services include:

  • Programme and project management
  • Construction management
  • Commercial management
  • PMO (project controls)
  • Construction, fit out and refurbishment
  • Physical security, systems and technologies
  • Resilience and risk, physical vulnerability assessments, security resilience modelling
  • Cyber security, vulnerability assessments, cyber systems architecture & consultancy

Secure by design and into operation

Our integrated security service offer meets the security needs of today’s businesses. Services combine: cyber security modelling and design, physical security modelling and design, security infrastructure, construction and installation. Our critical analysis at the design stage of a project generates time and cost savings, identifying any vulnerabilities from a security perspective at the very beginning of a project. 


Collaborative but challenging

Working in integrated teams with our defence sector clients, we offer specialist support to augment their teams, whilst bringing fresh thinking and knowledge from other sectors.
