Properties and Facilities Management
Our integrated facilities management information services practice (FMIS) provides several major services for government agencies. The emphasis of IFMIS is to ensure that facilities fulfill the purpose for which they were built and can be operated and maintained as intended. Each group within the unit is managed by a licensed professional with the responsibility to deliver effective solutions without compromising quality.
Carbon and Energy Economics
The need to limit greenhouse gas emissions has far-reaching implications for businesses and governments. We develop new thinking on carbon and energy systems and on the methods and economics of reducing emissions and adapting to the effects of climate change. We use this knowledge to answer our clients’ strategic questions about making the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Long-Term Energy Strategies
We use our systems-level understanding of carbon, greenhouse gas mitigation, and energy to help companies formulate long-term energy and investment strategies. We also help government departments find untapped opportunities to improve energy efficiency in an industry or sector, identify barriers to capturing them, and develop policies and actions to reduce energy consumption without damaging productivity or growth.
Computerized Facility Management Systems
When buildings are constructed they must be maintained in order to have fully functioning and operating facilities. We provide facility operators with the software capability to accumulate and access information acquired during design and construction and to use it to operate constructed facilities. Services are system design, purchase, and installation of software and implementation of facility management systems, including end-user training and technical support.
Survey and Documentation Solutions
We provide clients with accurate building data that can be used to develop capital projects as well as provide information used for operation and maintenance of the facility. We develop documentation including space survey, existing floor plans, room and space cataloging, and exit routes. Documentation also includes inventory and assessment of capital assets, the building's support and communication systems, and other related items used in the operation and maintenance of the facility.
To make effective infrastructure investments, decision makers must balance a variety of economic, social, and environmental considerations.
While infrastructure presents unique challenges, it also offers opportunities for both the public and private sector. Our Infrastructure Practice helps clients identify, plan, finance, deliver, and operate infrastructure that delivers economic and social value.
