Facilities Management in Defence

Providing specialist capabilities for the management of complex military and defence facilities with challenging operational delivery parameters.

We maintain high-end facilities management abilities from the delivery of largescale building projects and complex maintenance through to traditional hard and soft facilities management, but partner with specialist providers where there are benefits to the customer from the wider offer that we can provide.

Facilities management is increasingly complex due to growing customer requirements, but providers are being challenged by cost pressures, reducing customer spend, improvement in asset availability, and increased statutory and regulatory requirements.

Serco’s expertise in base support and facilities management gives us a unique capability to deliver operational excellence and cost effectiveness to the military, where a wide range of services need to be integrated successfully to enable military outputs to be effectively provided. Through our services, we help our customers across the GCC to reduce operating costs, improve asset availability and utilisation, manage asset lifecycle, improve safety, and enhance troop morale.

Our integrated services include:

  • Management and administration services
  • Warehousing
  • Equipment hire
  • Vehicle hire and management
  • Utilities management and operations
  • Waste management
  • Maintenance of mobile plant
  • Provision of fuel and refuelling
  • Catering
  • Reception and accommodation services
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Infrastructure support
  • Local procurement
  • Gymnasium services
  • Pest and vermin control
  • Canteen and retail services

The integrated approach leverages our strong customer relationships, agility at the point of delivery, and service delivery record.
