Asset Systems, Operations & Performance
Our Asset Systems, Operations & Performance team have a unique approach to planning, delivering and operating infrastructure and services. We put operational and asset performance at the heart of every project and contract. Unified under a common ‘Systems Thinking’-led framework, we work with clients to realise the full potential of infrastructure to deliver social, environmental and economic objectives.
Our clients include government, infrastructure agencies, and infrastructure and service operators and maintainers across the asset lifecycle. Our team combines their deep domain expertise with strategic and technical expertise. Our services include:
- Systems engineering advice
- Asset performance optimisation
- Facilities management
- Operations strategy and planning
- Commercial advice on operations and maintenance model.
Each of these can be a stand-alone service. However, our clients often realise additional value by integrating these offerings across all phases of a project and contract to optimise performance and minimise whole-of-life cost.
