Asset management

Asset owners worldwide are required to do more with less, continually optimising asset performance to meet their stakeholders' expectations. Effective asset management is moving from a task-focused discipline to a long-term, multidisciplinary process with complex outcomes affecting every facet of an organisation.

GHD combines disciplines and experience across every stage of the asset lifecycle to take a whole-of-life approach to deliver tangible outcomes for our clients and their stakeholders. Our approach is built around the following points:

  • The best programs combine strategic asset management knowledge with deep technical experience. GHD Advisory's Asset Management team blends professionals across disciplines such as architecture, engineering, communications and social sciences with experienced practitioners in every stage of the asset management lifecycle.
  • Long-term asset management means consistently getting it right, anticipating the megatrends and responding to the challenges of disruptive technologies. GHD has been leading the industry on technology changes and advances in asset management practice for much of our 90-year history.
  • Managing the asset lifecycle is about more than cost savings. Our approach focuses on sustaining long-term organisational improvements and best delivery outcomes across a range of measures including safety, social benefits, improved service, reduced cost or any other outcome important to our clients.
  • Regulatory constraints often present major challenges for our clients, Our Advisory team includes regulatory specialists to assist our clients to respond effectively to a given regulatory model.
  • Industry is moving towards optimising overall asset portfolio value and identifying long-term risks instead of focusing on individual assets and short-term gains.
  • Rapid technological changes and the drive toward big data creates new opportunities to increase infrastructure performance, reduce build disruptions and extend asset life: GHD Advisory's Asset Management team combines innovation with the latest asset management systems to enhance our clients' businesses.

The GHD Asset Management team provides asset management services across the whole asset lifecycle in the following focus areas:

GHD’s digital team assists clients to tap into their full business potential by using technology to manage data and drive business value.

We provide digital strategy, tools and services to support operational excellence across multiple business functions to clients across industries throughout the world.

Make better decisions with data

Organisations are brimming with data but don’t tap into its full potential or derive value from this investment. The GHD digital team uses location intelligence, Building Information Modelling (BIM), 3D visualisation and other tools to empower clients to optimise processes, resolve challenges, predict future scenarios and make the right decisions to improve business performance.

Work smarter to save costs and time

Effective digital strategy requires holistic thinking. GHD combines a deep understanding of assets and business processes with data technology expertise to provide real value to data. Our engineers, asset management and business systems specialists employ tools such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), ICS, ICT, data management and analysis and location intelligence.

Apply innovative technology to the built environment

Understanding the power of technology, GHD uses Geographic Information System (GIS) and BIM-based visualisations, 3D data layering and real-time interactive software and applies these tools to critical infrastructure to improve design review, operational awareness, risk assessment, facilities management, process simulation and more. These tools also provide an easy to use and accessible view to your complex business information.
