An efficient Defence Force depends on an effective, operationally ready estate environment. Defence industry facilities require continual upgrade and support. This path must be flexible and efficient, with smart design that optimises cost and provides for user requirements across the infrastructure’s Whole-of- Life (WOL).
WSP works with the South African National Defence Force to conceptualise, select the best options, manage the feasibility process and execute the project. Our considerable experience has taught us to approach every project by considering the multi-cultural challenges of your internationally competitive industry.
