We provide independent advice to our clients to develop strategies and policy that drive their business forward.
Examples of the Strategy services we offer include:
We are highly experienced in many aspects of transaction bidding, including bid strategy development, document production, technical review, quality assurance of deliverables, tender evaluation and business case development.
Our team has been directly involved in the procurement of multiple recent new rolling stock orders, supporting both operators and manufacturers. We lead and support new train tendering processes including specification development, invitation to tender production, evaluation of submissions and award decisions.
We understand how important the right organisation is for delivering your transformational projects. Our team has worked with clients to structure their organisations with the right accountabilities and governance to manage a major change such as bringing maintenance in-house.
We work closely with our clients on their truly transformational decisions and projects. As well as providing expert advice, we work hand-in-hand with our client to implement the transformation so that it delivers sustainable business benefits.
Examples of the Transformation services we offer include:
With direct experience of projects totalling over 900 rail vehicles introduced, our team has vast experience of recent new train introduction. Be it design reviews, contract management, testing or taking in to service, we have the know-how and tools that make us the ideal partner for our clients
We work on some of the largest aviation infrastructure projects where we support operational process change, for example through developing Concepts of Operations (ConOps); and develop and deliver Operational Readiness, Activation and Transition (ORAT) strategies, for example through planning and managing operational trials
Many of our clients require project engineering services, such as refurbishment or upgrade projects and design reviews. We have the right blend of experience and knowledge to support our clients in whatever engineering support they require.
Mobilising a new operational contract is a time critical process, where it counts to have robust, deliverable projects communicated in a clear and consistent way. Our team is familiar with ensuring deliverables for day 1 are achieved in compliance with contract requirements, and putting the frameworks in place for the early projects until the operational team is ready to take over.
Our clients are always looking to optimise their operational processes in a variety of ways. We use our expertise and experience to go beyond giving advice and work throughout the implementation and deployment of operational improvements. We support our clients in delivering lasting benefits through reduced costs, increased efficiency, quality and process throughput.
Examples of the Operational Improvement services we offer include:
We have worked in partnership with some of the biggest operators and maintainers to optimise their maintenance and operational delivery. We know the common pitfalls, and work hand in hand with our clients in the implementation phase so that cost and asset availability benefits are genuinely realised.
We have deep analytical expertise in evaluating the capacity of airport infrastructure and have developed sophisticated bespoke modelling approaches for all the key touchpoints in the flow of passengers, bags and aircraft, from landside roads, to terminal operations such as check in and security, to airfield operations.
We regularly analyse the key components of operational expenditure and advise on potential for efficiencies for airport operators and economic regulators, including analysing cost evolution, benchmarking and cost forecasting. Our unique combination of analytical and airport operations expertise allows us to see beyond the numbers and provide some unique insights.
Providing assurance against requirements for new or changed assets can easily de-rail a project, just when it is at the time critical acceptance stage. Our consultants have significant experience in creating and delivering assurance strategies that ensure correct requirements identification, clear evidence provision and customer sign-off in a timely and robust manner.
We work closely with our partners to improve the performance of their assets. Our team has transformed asset performance for fleets globally, introducing new analysis and governance techniques, then working on site with the performance teams to ensure improvements are delivered to their full potential.
