Asset Management Project (AMP) Methodology
We specialize in all areas of asset management from developing asset management policies and strategies to completing detailed maintenance optimized studies. We complement this experience with our comprehensive understanding of technology functional needs assessments, technology selection, procurement and the implementation of AM enabling software tools.
Our approach to developing Asset Management Plans (AMPs) is asset-centric, evidence-based, and level of service-based. Our AMPs result in prioritized tactical investments, complete with costs and impact that you can use, measure, and understand.
We focus on the tactical operationalization of infrastructure recommendations, rather than creating summary-level strategy documents. This approach has been tested and implemented on numerous projects, and is proven to deliver results that are effective long after project completion.
Before beginning any asset management project, we will make sure that we have a thorough understanding of the project objectives and constraints. Assets can vary extensively between projects, and we will ensure that your plans are aligned around a range of core municipal infrastructure assets. We assist our clients in the development of their asset management strategies, to forming the plan and ultimately delivering asset management at the operational level.
