Future-proof asset management for infrastructure and public space is essential
Today, much more is demanded of a management organisation of infrastructure and public space than ever before. The environment in which these capital goods operate is changing rapidly due to developments relating to digitisation, sustainability, cybersecurity, climate change, civic participation and the need to replace engineering structures. The assets themselves are ageing and being increasingly intensively used. At the same time, management organisations are expressly expected to use the available budgets effectively, efficiently and transparently.
Approach to future-proof asset management
Drawing on our extensive experience, we know that successful asset management and smart infrastructure consists of four crucial elements. The first is a targeted approach. This is aimed at organising and implementing a flexible process chain, from policy and strategy to evaluation and adjustment. Secondly, it is important to order and update asset information. We work together with the client to ensure current, reliable and accessible information. To do this, we use the very latest tools.
The third element is high quality technical knowledge and related themes, such as financial and technical know-how, as well as knowledge about environmental and sustainability aspects. And last but not least, a professional team. Asset management is very much people business. Teams which are equipped for their tasks are indispensable for successful asset management. We offer training and coaching, we can support the implementation of asset management or take on specific management tasks.
A lot could be done to ensure future-proof management organisations in provinces, municipalities and water boards. It is a mission that requires new and innovative ways of thinking along with in-depth knowledge and expertise.About Royal HaskoningDHV
