Defence Sector

We have a wide range of experience in the defence sector, providing quality project outcomes.

Common Defence Sector Challenges

Maintaining Australia’s Defence capability relies upon well considered delivery of program of works to meet the operational needs of the department and their major contractors.

Our integrated and collaborative approach delivers solutions to support the sustainability and capability of the Australian Government’s Defence Estate. Our clients partner with us to maximise value for money and seek innovation from the industry.

From our experience the challenges faced in this Sector include:


Aging Assets

The Defence Estate contains a number of aging assets that need to be re-purposed or re-developed which raises a number of challenges. This includes future proofing existing Estate assets and planning for the development and integration of new assets.

Strategic Changes

Strategic changes can result in significant impacts on the Defence Estate. This requires dynamic and innovative development of assets to maintain operational capabilities.


Defence is heavily reliant on OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers), MSP (Major Service Providers), and professional services firms to support the delivery of their programs. Inadequate coordination of these suppliers can create delays and failure to meet milestones.

Budget Over-runs

High investment in large infrastructure assets challenges the Defence budget allocations and management. Due to the large size and complexity of the programs there are significant interfaces and risks which are difficult to adequately define in budgets.
