Growing business value through successful projects

Protecting the owner’s long term interest during a capital project is critical for business success.

Projects that meet safety, cost, schedule, operability and business performance targets don’t happen by chance.  They rely on a structured process.

The business idea must be developed so that the project can be properly initiated

As the design progresses it is important at each stage to align the activities and outputs with the needs of the business, the project team and the engineering contractors.

Every decision through the design, construction, commissioning and operation needs to consider the owners longer term goals in order to ultimately deliver a successful business.

The management of capital investment has an enormous effect on profitability and competitiveness, yet few companies do it effectively. We believe that the use of evaluation tools, disciplined processes, and best practices can help companies trim capital spending by up to a quarter without reducing capacity or functionality – and improve their operating costs and revenues through better investment decisions.
