Defence is changing – and modern defence infrastructure needs to change too. Naval ports, bases, and shipyards must be efficient, environmentally compliant, and great places to work if they’re to meet the needs of today’s operators.
As a leading global consultancy, we help defence clients to navigate that change – designing, developing, and optimising sustainable, future-proofed naval infrastructure that enables successful operations.
Whether you’re upgrading your current naval port infrastructure or building new facilities, it’s difficult to deliver the high quality you need, on time and on budget.
You’re tackling all kinds of challenges – increasingly complex ships, the need to develop sustainable infrastructure, higher expectations for living and leisure facilities from today’s generation of sailors, and more. But you don’t need to face these issues alone.
At Royal HaskoningDHV, we deliver smart design and engineering solutions that create modern and resilient infrastructure, and meet the demands of a modern navy.
Our knowledge of naval shipyards and ports has been honed through decades of work in commercial and defence sectors, and we have extensive experience in addressing the pressures naval base operators face.
With our colleagues at First Marine International (FMI) and Lanner, we’re able to deliver outcomes that improve naval port operations and performance, and support operational success.
We apply our wealth of experience in the defence sector and naval facilities engineering across the full lifecycle of global naval, land, and air defence infrastructure.
Together with our colleagues at the Netherlands Airport Consultants (NACO), we’re world leaders in the aviation industry, capable of analysing, maintaining, and designing the most complex defence infrastructures.
With experience in both commercial and military aerospace, we're able to incorporate the very latest design technology and processes to manage current and future aviation capabilities. This helps our clients make airbases and other defence facilities better places to live and work – now, and in the future.
To create future-proof defence facilities that will continue to thrive for decades to come, you need a combined digital, sustainable, and climate resilient strategy.
