Host of the Defence Connect Podcast Phil Tarrant is joined by Clint Thomas, managing director of Serco Defence and Norman Whittaker, infrastructure leader, defence at GHD to discuss the recent memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two companies and how they are reshaping the defence estate industry.


The podcast begins by examining the background of the recent collaborative agreement between the two companies, and how they hope to expand their offering in the industry.

The trio continues by analysing the core deliverables of Serco Defence and GHD, and how both companies are crucial for delivering better services to Australian defence personnel and supporting Australia’s war readiness.

The podcast wraps up discussing how bases can improve in line with recommendations from the defence estate industry, and thus continue delivering leading services for the Australian Defence Force and Department of Defence.
