Strategic Advisory Services

In today’s world, we are faced with a complex set of economic, environmental and social drivers that force us to consider more than just lowest whole-life cost. To manage these drivers, we have aligned our services with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and net-zero carbon targets, an approach that will take most asset managers beyond the edge of their current capabilities. Our asset management advisory team has an excellent track record of working closely with client organisations including Aarhus Vand, Affinity Water and the Environment Agency to maximise the potential value in their asset portfolios while taking into consideration wider environmental and societal impacts. We are experienced in creating meaningful strategies, plans and systems to provide clients with clarity in long-term, life-cycle decision-making. Through our Institute of Asset Management (IAM) accredited Binnies Academy, we provide asset management and health and safety training. We also offer maturity assessments against international standards such as ISO 55001, thereby supporting clients through their whole journey to asset management excellence. Our asset management maturity assessments are carried out by experienced asset management practitioners who are able to give clients valuable insights into how they can manage their assets more effectively and holistically rather than just providing them with a formulaic audit highlighting gaps.

To help our clients compare asset information when prioritising investment planning, we create value and risk frameworks and models, and we use scenario planning to optimise spend profiles for best whole-life value outcomes. For asset planning, we use dynamic Power BI planning tools, which give a variety of organisational stakeholders the information they need to make the best decisions in their stewardship of a sustainable and resilient asset base.

We are experts in water sector regulatory assurance, carbon accounting and sustainable development, fields in which we bring together financial, environmental and built environment information. Our team also works closely with our digital products and services colleagues to systemise these outputs into digital strategy and planning tools. One of our key differentiators is our experience and ability to take complex, dissimilar data sets and use risk and value methodologies to create meaningful information for asset management planning.
