Everyone benefits when transport assets are managed well
As asset managers, we have the ability to create what matters for future generations. It’s a chance for us to improve the way we live, work and play.
Due to funding cuts in recent years, more and more highways authorities have embraced asset management and focused on having a detailed understanding of all their assets as well as delivering the agreed level of service at the least possible lifecycle cost.
At Opus, we offer a wide range of engineering services that support all aspects of asset management and development. We work alongside our clients to plan, develop, maintain and operate transport infrastructure assets effectively and efficiently.
Our team of over 500 asset managers worldwide often have an engineering background, but, just as importantly, they have skills in data handling and manipulation to support good decision making processes. Their skills build upon an engineers’ skills in design and construction, taking whole of life performance and economic factors into consideration as well as operational issues, safety and maintainability.
We arm asset owners with knowledge of what they are worth, how they deteriorate and what maintenance interventions are required to deliver required service levels. We look across the whole asset lifecycle to develop optimum investment strategies for maintenance, renewals and capital improvements.
