Using our proven approach, ALCAMiE™, we combine customised systems and processes to deliver services and manage costs over the whole life of an asset.

ALCAMiE™ is perfectly suited to the challenging environment in which emergency services organisations operate, encouraging innovation in design through to producing detailed data on each asset and daily reports that provides key information on the performance and availability of vehicles and equipment. Through this process, ALCAMiE™ helps to ensure that the right assets are always available and fit for purpose - when and where they are needed.

Our customers include the Metropolitan Police Service, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Service, the Department of Communities and Local Government, Associated British Ports and Highways England.

Optimising the built estate

The built estate plays an important part in helping the blue light sector to deliver, providing critical infrastructure for the range of services and activities required for frontline operations.

Babcock helps its clients to optimise the performance of their built estate throughout its lifecycle. In using our unique combination of technical, management and analytical expertise, we enable clients to think differently about how to approach their property portfolio.

Through services ranging from strategic property advice and estate rationalisation, to refurbishment programmes and facilities management, Babcock helps customers to reduce costs, improve efficiency and operate in an environmentally sustainable way without impacting upon frontline service delivery.

We support over 35,000 properties, including critical 24/7 facilities, police stations, data centres, laboratories and offices. On behalf of Fire Authorities, we also operate purpose-built fire training facilities, which were designed, financed and built by Babcock.
