Government & Defence
Vercity works with several government departments and particularly with the Ministry of Defence and its international role. With the world becoming more security conscious, organisations and government departments need trusted suppliers and supply chains that provide certainty. As a provider and industry partner to the MOD and wider defence industry, Vercity can add value to high profile operations and ensure they continue uninterrupted, twenty-four-seven.
A trusted partner that understands the criticality of the sector
As a trusted partner to many large organisations and government departments like the Ministry of Defence, we understand the sector, its criticality, and the challenges it faces. We’re responsible for managing a large number of infrastructure projects, including the MOD’s military and civilian headquarters, its strategic command centre and military housing.
We operate across an estate that includes Grade 1 listed buildings and highly secure environments. We’ve assisted with estate rationalisation, the reduction of operating and whole life costs to governments and the release of funds for other needs. To date, we’ve successfully delivered capital projects totalling over £700m, on schedule, within budget and without disruption to operations.
Over the years, we’ve won several industry recognised awards, including BIFM Sustainable Award, the UCL Innovation Partner of the Year, multiple ROSPA Gold awards and the Best in Service Sector for the Institute of Collaborative Working 2020.
