The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has appointed Mace as Client Side Partner (CSP) to support the delivery of over 100 construction projects across the UK
DEO is a long-term Ministry of Defence (MoD) programme to optimise the UK’s defence estate for future military requirements. The programme combines military and infrastructure expertise to transform the places where the Armed Forces live, work and train.
Mace’s teams will be based in a number of MoD locations.
Mace’s appointment builds on the consultancy company’s previous work for the MoD and DIO as Strategic Construction Advisor and Strategic Design Advisor, helping to provide advice on complex construction programmes.
The CSP contract was placed using the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) framework agreement for project management and full design technical services. It is a two-year contract, with options to extend for a further two years.
Mark Holmes, Mace’s chief operating office for consultancy, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected by the DIO to deliver this important role in the transformation of the UK’s defence estate. The DEO programme is a vital series of projects that will ensure our defence estate is future-proof and meets the needs of the modern Armed Forces.
“Our appointment marks another significant step forward for Mace’s work in the defence sector, which has been a strategic focus and has grown from strength to strength over the last two years.”
