Providing estate solutions that drive sustainable outcomes to support Australia's defence sector.
Agile and innovative solutions for the Defence estate
In the current economic and geopolitical climate, the Department of Defence faces unprecedented challenges in addition to ongoing business-as-usual requirements. JLL’s specialised teams continue to maintain, support and enhance Australia’s defence sector.
JLL is proud of our long-standing partnership with the Defence estate property portfolio, having had an active involvement in improving the lives of Australia’s defence communities across a broad spectrum of property solutions. We specialise in leveraging technology to implement smarter systems in their base services, while providing modern accommodation and amenities to enhance the wellbeing of Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel and their families.
We use our market-leading research and extensive business intelligence to harness opportunities, optimise operations and provide the defence estate timely and quality advice, backed by data.
For more than a decade, we have consistently delivered key property services and ongoing program initiatives for the ADF while also meeting unique capability requirements and responding to spontaneous local challenges. Armed with years of knowledge and experience, we’re here to provide direct support across the Defence operational and real estate environment.
Supplier diversity forms a key part of our strategy. In the 2020/2021 financial year, Indigenous construction companies received 39% of JLL’s total spend on Defence Estate Works Program projects. This is up from 15% just three years prior. You can read more about how defence contracts are empowering Indigenous communities here.
