June 17, 2024 | Press release

Sweco has been awarded a four-year framework agreement worth approximately EUR 21 million by the Danish Ministry of Defence Estate Agency (MDEA). In this assignment, Sweco will be solely responsible for providing strategic consultancy in the construction, maintenance, development and sustainability of military operative properties across Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

The MDEA “Forsvarsministeriets Ejendomsstyrelse” manages and expands military facilities such as barracks, naval bases, air force stations, shooting ranges, training grounds and other property on behalf of the Danish Armed Forces. It is also responsible for the environment and energy agenda for the entire Ministry of Defence’s area of authority.

“We are delighted to contribute to this important societal task — to upgrade and further develop the physical framework for the Danish Ministry of Defence. We were selected because of our cross-cutting perspective in solving tasks. Our strength at Sweco comprises our many skills as well as our ability to bring them into play in interdisciplinary advisory services from technical to strategic levels. With that approach, we look forward to supporting the MDEA for the next four years,” says Dariush Rezai, Business Area President for Sweco in Denmark.

This is the first time that the MDEA has entered a strategic collaboration with one single advisor. In the coming years, Sweco will support the major build-out projects that are expected to take place, to ensure fast and efficient construction as well as to secure knowledge sharing in the process. Sustainability advice, working environment coordination and property portfolio consultancy are also included in Sweco’s services within the framework agreement.

The assignment started in May 2024 and will continue for four years with an expected budget of DKK 160 million and a maximum limit of DKK 240 million.
