Help at any stage

Informed planning and sound investment decisions are essential to meet community and stakeholder needs.
Our team helps to shape investment decisions to deliver the intended benefits through a range of services including strategic planning, demand modelling, feasibilities studies, business case development, systems engineering and project management.
Procurement & Contracting
The tender and contracting processes for large infrastructure projects are complex and often performed under tight timelines.
We help clients design and deliver procurement and contracting strategies to engage the market, manage risks and deliver on their requirements to realise project benefits and value for money.
Delivery & Commissioning
Delivering and commissioning complex asset and infrastructure projects is challenging. Our team assists in preparing for operational readiness and successful handover to operations.
We provide a range of services including; project management, contract administration, project controls, contract compliance and assurance, systems integration, digital solutions and the resolution of commercial issues.
Operations & Asset Management
Asset intensive organisations are under constant pressure to meet growing demand, comply with new regulations, reduce costs and satisfy changing customer expectations.
We combine our deep sector knowledge with innovative digital techniques to identify how major assets can deliver more for stakeholders, while balancing cost, risk and performance.
Asset Transitioning, Restructuring & Transactions
Infrastructure, assets and places often need to evolve due to changes in user behaviour, environment, technology, population growth, regulations or to release value for owners.
We understand these drivers and can assist you in planning and implementing the required changes such as expansion, restructuring, modernising, decommissioning or transacting operational assets.
Evolving work patterns, climate change and the need for greater connectivity demand a rethink of our approach to places, suburbs and precincts.
Our placemaking team combines a wide range of capability from master planning, funding strategy, community engagement and transaction structuring.
We can help foster genuine collaboration with communities and, public and private sectors to encourage the creation of places that deliver shared value.
