Addressing environmental impact and performance of infrastructure assets

There is considerable focus on investing in infrastructure for tomorrow to stimulate and enhance economic productivity.

Population growth not only imposes additional challenges for the property industry, it creates demand for utilities and puts aging infrastructure to the test.

We recognise the importance of apportioning environment risk and performance with many significant infrastructure projects made possible with a combination of public and private funding. Life cycle considerations are an aspect we also take seriously, as clients operating in the infrastructure sectors are under increasing pressure to ultimately keep their customers costs down while maintaining high environmental performance standards.

Pacific Environment are currently strategic advisors to the WestConnex Delivery Authority for air quality aspects of the project. Click above to view our case study.

Identifying the source of frequent problems is aided with our EnviroSuite technology. By streamlining the logging and management of complaints, Envirosuite helps identify likely issues, such as odour within minutes of a complaint being received.
