Property Management

Babcock is the largest provider of property management services to the Ministry of Defence, and also serves customers in local government, education, home affairs and the petrochemical arena.

Through these collaborations we have developed responsive and effective services supporting complex property portfolios. These services cover project planning, built asset management, operation and maintenance, professional services and information communications technology (ICT) infrastructure.

We have the expertise to take responsibility for the complete management of critical property portfolios. We help our customers to reduce costs, giving them the peace of mind to focus on their core operations, confident that their estate is in safe and experienced hands.

Our success lies in our determination to work in partnership, liaising directly with customers to deliver bespoke solutions. Demonstrating this commitment, we are nearing accreditation to BS11000.

With substantial capabilities in total built asset management, Babcock's extensive portfolio covers over 35,000 properties. Delivering hard and soft built asset management through over 2,500 in-house specialists and an established supply chain, we provide planned preventative maintenance, reactive maintenance, major and minor new works, and operation and maintenance services.

Incorporating innovative asset management software, we have assisted our customers to rationalise their estates and allocate funding more efficiently; essential during tough economic times.

To ensure customers receive a cost-effective service, we have developed robust processes to deliver maintenance work based on asset criticality and condition. The approach reduces the amount of maintenance required, minimises downtime and maximises the efficiency of maintainers.

Priding itself on offering complete solutions, Babcock delivers single integrated service provision through a range of professional project management services. Our technical team are effective project managers, able to deliver contracts from concept, through completion and commissioning, to handover.

With in-house specialists in sustainable solutions, health and safety and quality, our customers have confidence that we provide a legally compliant, best value and innovative approach.

Testimony to our leading-edge capabilities, the Ministry of Defence recently awarded the Babcock the €200 million built asset management British Forces Germany contract. Over five years Babcock will deliver planned and reactive building maintenance, grounds maintenance and minor new works to support 12 stations with over 20,000 built assets.

This is the first time the Ministry of Defence has outsourced a major built asset management contract in Germany to the private sector. Babcock worked with the Ministry of Defence to develop a responsive, cost-effective and flexible solution, capable of evolving as the Ministry of Defence undertakes a period of significant transformation.
