Our Clients find that having a robust and holistic approach to early conceptual stages of projects provides them with confidence that the right direction is being pursued, and ‘big ticket’ decisions are being made considering all relevant aspects and supported by solid justifications.
Our recommended process for this stage builds up a selection of options in a logical and systematic way. We aim to promote inherent low risk designs that minimise the safety, environmental, and business risks during the earliest part of the project. By taking a risk management approach early in the design, we can allow for contingencies and mitigation strategies to be planned in the later stages.
Our Clients have found that this early design stage is crucial in maximizing the inherent safety and overall value. This approach can also provide a solid platform for safety cases, BAT submissions and regulatory interactions.
