Defence Services in Europe

Tetra Tech has provided award-winning master planning, architect-engineer (A-E), program and project management, remediation, environmental science, and engineering services to UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) installations for more than two decades.

Tetra Tech is Leading with Science® to deliver key services to support the MoD and DoD to improve efficiency, functionality, and the ability to advance their missions, having successfully executed projects in 21 countries in Europe and Central Asia. We have regional presence and extensive contextual understanding backed by global resources and innovative technologies. Learn more about our global defence services.

We develop high calibre area and site plans using design charettes to facilitate multilateral stakeholder consensus. Our experts integrate component plans into long-range development plans and provide our clients multidisciplinary cross-cutting solutions that integrate modern technologies and sustainable planning ideas. Our highly specialized expertise and breadth of skills spans area development and master plans, net-zero planning, and everything in between. Learn more about our master planning services.

Our design approach recognises the critical importance of end-user needs. Our engineers, planners, and facility management experts collect and leverage data to consider seismic, security, and sustainability factors both in design and project execution. Tetra Tech provides full lifecycle A-E and technical design services on defence bases in varied climates ranging from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. We are skilled at developing comparative analyses at the project onset to ensure the appropriate regulations are applied. Learn more about our A-E services.

Tetra Tech uses our engineering design and construction experience to provide Title II oversight—design reviews, incidental design, construction supervision, and maintenance and repair services—to the MoD and DoD and the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency. We implement best practice quality assurance techniques and maintain compliance with all international codes and standards. Our teams lead renovation and repair efforts that improve the efficiency and health and safety of installations. This includes the changeout of aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) or per- and polyfluoralkyl substances (PFAS) and perfluoroctane sulfonate/perfluorooctanic acid (PFOS/PFOA) -containing fire suppressants in Curacao, Germany, and the UK.

Tetra Tech’s expert geoscientists and engineers conduct site investigation, remedial design, remedial action, and long-term monitoring to address chemical, biological, and munitions threats. We have investigated complex fractured geology and performed unexploded ordnance (UXO) screenings in locations throughout Europe, Central Asia, and the Mediterranean. We use man-portable electromagnetic-61 survey platforms, real-time kinetic GPS data, and GIS mapping software. Learn more about our environment services.
