Helping infrastructure owners and operators achieve their strategic objectives by adding long-term value and optimising performance, to benefit their customers and their balance sheets – that’s what drives our approach to asset management.
We aim to help you develop planned strategic investment and maintenance so that your assets are always in an appropriate condition and operate to the highest efficiency standards as well as the most cost-effective performance regime. We do this by combining our skills in infrastructure planning, design, rehabilitation and maintenance with our global experience in project management, partnering, supervising, funding and finance. We understand how important people and processes are to efficient asset management and provide support for change initiatives and training or coaching.
Policy and strategy
We help you achieve your strategic targets by:
- Establishing the key technical, behavioural and organisation factors affecting delivery
- Identifying critical asset integrity, performance, degradation, sustainability and public/political perception factors
- Specifying appropriate systems to harness condition data, achieve appropriate assessment accuracy and consistency and incorporate risk appraisal in line with performance objectives
- Establishing prioritised intervention plans, based on condition vulnerability and risk of service failure
With the aid of gap analysis and external and internal facing assessments and stakeholder consultation, we offer advice in a collaborative environment to support a PAS 55 improvement plan in any sector. We also offer support in approaching PAS 55 accreditation, taking account of developing requirements for ISO 55000 as an international standard for asset management.
We’re ideally equipped to help you meet regulatory demands thanks to our advisory work with regulators:
- Economic regulatory agencies – helping new agencies develop the regulatory regime and build capacity; supporting long established agencies carry out their functions and advising on regulatory change
- Transport regulators – reviewing forecast and potential traffic growth; advising on pricing and economic regulatory models
- Drinking water quality regulatory agencies – reviewing water quality sampling and analysis requirements; advising on reporting and audit regimes; developing risk-based water safety plan approaches and requirements for dealing with incidents and emergencies.
