In recognising that the defence sector covers many individual
client groups and types of facilities WGI's experience in designing
for defence is wide ranging with many types of building and diverse
locations, and working with all three of the armed services.
Our design objectives have always been to produce functional and
robust buildings in which the armed forces can undertake their
respective roles and duties in service, as well as being provided
with comfortable and welcoming living, social and recreational
facilities. They are based on a clear understanding of the
uniqueness of the defence community, its deep sense of history and
pride, and the need to successfully balance the requirements of
people and equipment, as well as the quality of the natural
environment in which facilities are often located.
In working for all three armed forces our defence projects
include facilities for training, testing, maintenance, living,
recreation and healthcare capitalising on both our knowledge of the
individual client groups and our expertise across other sectors. As
the defence sector evolves to meet the challenges of ever changing
domestic and international demands we continue to play our part by
generating new ideas in the application of design standards, the
rationalisation of individual facilities and the consolidation of
the overall estate.
