Beca Defence Services
Beca has a long history of working with the Defence and National Security sector, working collaboratively to deliver superior results in partnership. We were founded by Arthur Gray, a returning serviceman from the WWI battlefields in Europe, and transformed under the leadership of George Beca, a decorated RNZAF WWII Mosquito Pilot. Beca was nurtured by bold visionaries who paved the way for the diverse and talented team. Today, under current Group CEO, Greg Lowe, a former Royal New Zealand Navy officer and engineer, we're taking that pioneering spirit to the value, benefit and solutions we generate for our clients.
We value our long-term relationships with our clients that support better delivery of capability together. We are the trusted industry partner who can collaborate for outcomes within assets, operational capability, systems integration and infrastructure so our Defence partners can focus on their key priorities – protecting the sovereignty, security and safety of the citizens in their care.
Defence: New Zealand
It’s fair to say when it comes to Defence, we’re a trusted partner. Beca's relationship with the New Zealand Defence Force and Ministry of Defence stretches back more than 50 years. And in 2016, we became the first professional services business to sign a Strategic Relationship Agreement with the New Zealand Defence Force.
Our work with Defence has included the design and development of Defence infrastructure such as camps, bases, airfields, wharves and fuel installations. We have also provided systems engineering consultancy services to help develop, support and sustain Defence capabilities and assets. Examples of our work includes the installation of Navy simulators at Devonport Naval Base and the management of capability upgrades to communications, sensors and weapons systems on HMNZ Ships, RNZAF aircraft and New Zealand Army vehicles.
With an embedded workforce at RNZAF bases, we provide through-life systems and software engineering support to RNZAF avionics software and flight simulators. We also provide strategic advisory support in the development of long term transformation programmes such as the Defence Estate Regeneration and Logistics Change Programmes.
We also work successfully in collaboration with a wide range of Defence industry partners to tailor the best outcomes for our Defence and National Security clients, ranging from strategic advisory services through to the delivery of embedded software engineering services.
As a foundation member and active participant in the New Zealand Defence Industry Association we are strong advocates of industry developing collaborative solutions to meet the needs of Defence.
We have augmented our Australian Defence offering and have developed a specialist, agile team delivering results in partnership with the Australian Defence Force. Our team of industry-experienced project transformation specialists, many formerly from Defence, understand the complexity and challenges of the industry. Their blend of expertise supports us to deliver first-class results on time, to specification and on budget.
We have a dedicated Defence team currently servicing the RAN, CASG, E&IG and ARMY. Plus we are backed by one of the largest engineering and professional services firms in the Asia-Pacific, and the only engineering and technical Defence business spanning Australia and New Zealand.
Most recently we have been contracted as a Major Services Provider to CASG together with Jacobs Engineering Group. We continue to assist Defence successfully deliver some of Australia’s key Defence projects, including sustainment and seaworthiness with condition assessment, assurance, organisational and process development work within Fleet Command; capability development and acquisition support for Defence’s new surface fleet and land and joint electronic warfare projects; and estates and infrastructure work including national airfields maintenance and upgrades, maritime critical infrastructure and assurance, and policy frameworks for E&IG.
