Investing in new assets can add significant financial and strategic value to a business.
To maximize this value and meet stakeholder expectations, leading companies commit significant resources before, during and after the development. Investors, government authorities, non-government agencies and local communities all have a vested interest in, and a significant impact on, how major capital projects progress.
Non-technical considerations, such as cultural heritage, are increasingly coming to the fore and must be handled with as much care as technical factors. By proactively managing both technical and non-technical issues, companies can accelerate timelines, enhance reputation and increase the financial value of the project.
ERM helps clients keep major capital projects on schedule, on budget and on scope by providing EHSS insights and expertise throughout the project lifecycle, from planning and design to implementation and on-going management. We work hand in hand as part of a cohesive unit with our clients’ development teams, Engineering, Procurement and Construction teams, and other parties to provide a unique focus on EHSS issues that are often underestimated.
We have a proven track record of helping clients across industry sectors maximize the return from their major capital projects, particularly complex and often high-profile projects that many other firms may find too difficult. We employ best practices, methodologies and technologies that help to:
- Evaluate options for best risk-adjusted outcomes;
- Meet compliance, safety and sustainability goals;
- Increase operational efficiency;
- Enhance stakeholder relationships; and
- Create greater long-term value from projects.
