Working in partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Royal Navy at HM Naval Base Devonport and HM Naval Base Clyde, Babcock is trusted to deliver substantial efficiency and service improvements across all Naval Base activities.

Contracted by the MOD, Babcock provides services including fleet time engineering, facilities management, waterfront services, logistics and transport within an agreed operating budget, firmly focused on continuous and sustainable improvement in warship and submarine support.

Babcock has a similar contract with the New Zealand Defence Force to manage its base in Auckland with a comparable savings and benefits operating model.

Savings have been achieved through the creation and implementation of improved productivity and processes, enhanced people skills and, most importantly, underpinned by a culture firmly focused on safety across all of these sites.

Our success in naval base management has mainly been attributable to the concept of a ‘one-team’ approach, where Babcock and its customers work together within a partnering framework against Key Performance Indicators.

Together we have challenged many traditional working practices and processes and introduced innovative solutions to maximise output and ensure consistentency, value-for-money and best quality.
