Aurecon will help organisations make better decisions about the asset base to deliver infrastructure projects that improve both productivity and quality of life

Bringing investment value to life

Infrastructure advisory

Shaping infrastructure decisions for resilient asset outcomes

With demand for investable infrastructure projects and programmes often outstripping supply, organisations are being challenged to provide satisfactory investment returns for owners while also improving the well-being and resilience of communities and the environment.

Achieving these outcomes requires a deep understanding of the way that commercial project outcomes must address corporate strategy and stakeholder expectations of return on investment. We make this possible by combining our advisory, design and engineering services to drive asset value and organisational transformation.

Aurecon’s infrastructure advisory specialists work with public and private organisations to help them navigate strategic, technical, commercial and risk uncertainties to inform major infrastructure investment and support project delivery requirements.

We also work with clients to navigate the integrated planning requirements to transition assets in response to market and stakeholder pressures necessitating operational shifts.

Our difference

Aurecon is uniquely positioned to interpret the strategic, commercial, technical and risk language of organisations and convert these into actions to improve performance and asset value.

Our value to clients is the way we connect strategy with infrastructure delivery to optimise the quality and rationale of investment decisions regarding new or existing assets. This results in capital productivity improvements, together with improved returns across asset portfolios, and enables our clients to meet their stakeholder and customer expectations.

Our transparent and auditable approach uses digital engineering and visualisation to test a richer range of potential solutions than is possible using traditional methods of design.

Partnering with clients across a range of markets, in locations worldwide, our six integrated advisory offerings help shape your assets for competitive advantage.
