In today’s economy, balancing fiscal constraints with capital improvement needs can be a challenge. Owners and operators of infrastructure the world over are charged with developing programs that enable them to maintaining safe and efficient operations. Customers are expecting improved reliability and more amenities, and requesting more efficient services.
Parsons Brinckerhoff designs and implements performance-based programming processes to measure and report capital needs, identify and detail state-of-good-repair, capacity, enhancement, and expansion investment needs and communicate those needs in terms that are meaningful to policy-makers, customers and stakeholders. Working with clients to align investment decisions and project priorities with their goals, we draw on our industry expertise to establish methods to better link capital planning to programming and delivery, review and design of programming and prioritization procedures, integrate capital planning with O&M planning, develop multi-year program scenarios, and analyze alternative programming and procurement options.
