Defence and security

Safeguarding the UK and its allies. Leveraging digital technologies. Building resilient networks.

Vital to protecting the nation, defence and security projects require a forward-looking and knowledgeable delivery team to lead the way. At Mace, we’re a trusted ally to the UK sector, and act as an agile partner to deliver complex property and infrastructure programmes across the defence estate.

Our reach is vast. We work with international governments, police forces, court houses, military institutes and nuclear establishments. We support defence across the globe - from the Royal Navy to the British Army and Royal Air Force - helping these crucial institutions to both grow and serve.

We deliver embassies, airports, research and data centres, working at the forefront of major programmes in highly secure locations. And we often work on projects while they are still in operation - like our recent work upgrading facilities used by service personnel and their families, as delivery partner for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Our defence team provides a wide range of fully integrated project and programme management services. And as these services expand at pace, we continue to improve security infrastructure and frameworks worldwide, delivering distinctive value on some of the world’s most technical programmes of work.

We’re committed to helping the sector to defend the planet too. We advise governments and provide solutions on net zero carbon, biodiversity net gain, wellbeing and healthy buildings, responsible procurement and social value. From a recent project with Defence Equipment & Security (where we worked with the Ministry of Defence to add 10,000sqm of solar panels) to supply chain management and fit out activities for military headquarters, we’re dedicated to ensuring the sector’s future sustainability.

We are continually learning and applying the knowledge we gain to both the defence sector and the others in which we operate. We innovate and explore new ways to deliver transformation of places where the Armed Forces live, work, train and deploy. We are bold, and working in integrated teams with our defence sector clients, we advocate for pre-emptive problem-solving - challenging conventional thinking, redefining project ambitions.
