Add value to your defence surfacing project

Our previous experience informs all our projects, allowing us to identify opportunities where we can add value for our customers. Due to the strict specifications outlined within defence projects, we focus on enhancing programme efficiency wherever we can. As well as ensuring that suitable precautions are in place such as back-up equipment, we will deliver the best possible value by ensuring that trained operatives are available and allocated to your runway on a long-term basis. This has a number of benefits: reducing turnaround for security clearances, maximising investment in the initial screening process, and retaining site-specific knowledge.
