Asset management at Aurecon, helping organisations achieve and maintain quartile one performance

Bringing asset performance to life

Asset management & performance

Helping asset owners achieve and maintain quartile one performance

Across the globe, asset owners are facing the ever-increasing challenge of balancing service levels, asset performance, risk and expenditure to sustain assets over their lifecycle.

Critical infrastructure is under pressure to support the needs of a rapidly changing society. In turn, public authorities are faced with the challenge of managing assets efficiently and cost effectively.

Safeguarding asset utilisation is becoming more relevant in customer facing organisations in sectors such as energy, transport, water, education and health where disruptions can impact service availability, safety and reputation.

An effective asset management program is also fundamental in sectors such as resources, oil and gas, and manufacturing, where lost production capability has an immediate impact on the financial bottom line. And for defence and national security, asset management and performance is critical to mission ready success.

We know what asset drivers impact our clients’ bottom line. Our deep knowledge of asset management comes from our history of working with asset owners around the globe, backed by our extensive delivery in asset design. We partner with asset intensive organisations to help them achieve and maintain quartile one performance, which means delivering a more profitable, sustainable, and future-right operation.

Our experience, knowledge and data sets allow us to provide an independent and validated perspective to our clients’ organisations. Our cross-functional team enables us to work at all levels, appreciating that sustainable change does not just come from the top. Our commercial lens, combined with our engineering backbone, enables us to ensure our clients’ decisions are about a better business, not just a better asset. We operate across the entire asset lifecycle, enabling us to bridge technical outcomes with business requirements.

We are unlike our competitors. We know assets because we design them.

Together with our digital leadership and strength through diversity, we can establish an integrated lifecycle management program to inform investment decisions and optimise our clients’ assets, from sustaining capital programs through to asset management transformation initiatives.
