The SHEPHERD Team are leaders in practical Infrastructure Asset Management.  We combine engineering principles with sound business and economic practice to develop systematic processes for the effective operation, maintenance, upgrade and renewal of assets.

At SHEPHERD we understand that the management of infrastructure assets is a critical issue for both the public sector and industry, particularly in regional and remote Australia where specialist skills, experience and tools are less accessible.

It is this understanding that drives us to strengthen existing asset management practices with innovative and affordable solutions for our clients.

We strive to assist our clients to employ asset management practices that will ensure their infrastructure meets the required level of service, in the most cost-effective way, over the life of the asset.

Our qualified team provide practical and cost saving solutions to optimise asset management plans and asset lifecycles.  We work alongside your team to develop capabilities within your organisation, ensuring your people have the confidence to continue projects and programs independently.

Our range of Asset Management Services includes:

  • Asset Infrastructure Strategic Planning
  • Asset Management Plans
  • Life Cycle Costing
  • Asset Registers
  • Financial Reporting
  • Risk Management
  • Service Level Determination, Measurements and Costing

At SHEPHERD we are happy to work with your current Asset Management and GIS systems, as our approach is independent of software and product vendors.
