TAKE A WIDER PERSPECTIVE

We’ll explore scenarios to provide insight into the best possible solution – which may not be the one you had in mind.

1. Are you addressing the right problem?
2. Look wide and deep 
All scenarios are identified and investigated in line with MECE principles: mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive. We accelerate progress to the best business case by discarding those which lack strategic fit or are technically unrealistic.
3. Which option will generate the most value?
Using multi-criteria analysis and parametric modelling tools, our high-level assessments identify the top one or two options that will deliver the most value for your business.
4. Can you deliver sustainability with profit?
To make your business more sustainable and profitable, we look for creative solutions in line with our commitment to enhance society together.
5. You benefit from our independence
By drawing on our expertise, you can be sure the outcome is free from bias, politics or powerful preferences that may exist within your organisation.
Enjoy the certainty that comes from having a solid business case to support your investment decision.

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE FACTS AND FIGURES

You can trust that our financial assessments are realistic and our solutions are feasible. That’s because we’re consultants as well as engineers, with real technological insight and experience.

1. Reliable estimates aren’t simply based on financial indicators
We create a technical concept to support the business case before we start on the financials. This provides a solid basis for estimates and ensures nothing essential is missed.
2.We make it real by pairing a global approach with local knowledge
We take a systematic approach to capital budgeting and draw input from our local network to ensure the figures reflect realities on the ground.
3. De-risk critical elements
Wastewater treatment, environmental or social impact, and legislation are examples of high-risk elements in your business case. With engineering expertise in house, we can quickly scan these for you in advance.
4. Stress-test the business case and maximise value 
Is the business case robust? We use sensitivity analysis to test it and assess the window of opportunity. Your business is better placed to manage the risks once they’ve been identified, enabling you to realise the true value of the investment.
5. Reap multiple benefits from our technical expertise
We don’t just say it. We can do it too! That means our assessments are based on real experience. Further, should you need it, you can access assistance or advice on design, engineering and construction as well as in-use and asset management.
6.Our experience - the ultimate peace of mind for you
We are involved in more than 100 industrial projects every year, guaranteeing you consistently accurate cost estimates.

A reliable CAPEX and OPEX estimate can make the difference between a good and unviable investment. The rigour, expertise and transparency we bring to the process enables you to make the right decision based on the right figures.
