Capital Program Planning and Management

Our team can help you optimize performance and generate greater value for your business by driving process improvements and changes. Our services align your capital plans, programs, and projects with your organization’s strategy and business objectives. We combine management, engineering, and behavioral sciences in the following service offerings:

  • Program optimization and “what-if” analysis.
  • Capital project and program development.
  • Project prioritization methods.

Feasibility and Finance

Bringing analytical rigor to business case analysis and feasibility assessments is essential to your success. Our team can provide:

  • Business case analysis.
  • Financial modeling, including CapEx/OpEx.
  • Procurement advisory services.
  • Program and project finance guidance.

Infrastructure Management Technology Services

Gannett Fleming provides consulting services that enable technology to be procured, implemented, and used across the infrastructure management lifecycle. We bring specialized knowledge of asset and maintenance management technologies including, but not limited to:

  • Bridge and tunnel management systems.
  • Enterprise asset management (EAM) systems.
  • Fixed and linear asset technologies.
  • Maintenance management systems.

Integrated Risk Management

Businesses are in a constant state of risk, either from internal or external factors, and their leaders face the challenge of knowing how to identify risks and manage those risks while taking advantage of the opportunities that arise.

Through our risk management process, we can help you define a plan to identify, assess, and prepare for any types of risks, dangers, hazards, and other possible disasters that may interfere with your organization’s operations and objectives.

When evaluating risks, we help companies focus on the adverse risks while also assessing the upside of risks – new opportunities. We will enhance your risk-based, decision-making processes and support the creation of risk profiles that:

  • Lead to capital improvements.
  • Assist in prioritizing the budget creation process.
  • Address environmental concerns.
  • Support employee safety, morale, and company culture.

We can create risk monitoring applications using geographic information system (GIS) and artificial intelligence (AI). This allows us to assist you with evaluating and measuring risks and providing you with the ability to actively manage and mitigate risks in real time.

Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality

The Gannett Fleming team can help you get immersed in your project from inception to inspection using:

  • Augmented reality (AR).
  • Virtual reality (VR).
  • Mixed reality (XR).

With AR/VR/XR, our experts can clearly show you the effects of a proposed building renovation or showcase the design in the real world to see how it will impact its environment.

Perhaps you are wondering how floods, fires, or other natural disasters will affect a building? You may need to review or inspect structures such as bridges or dams where safety is a concern. Our mitigation planning experience using AR/VR/XR will help you.

Geospatial Analytics

Thanks to cell phones and other smart devices, location data is increasing exponentially and has become an essential part of business solutions. This geospatial data can provide previously unknowable insights into your business.

Managing assets worldwide using location allows our clients to track maintenance lifecycles, identify nearby hazards, and so much more. For example, using location data in a grant submission enables you and your stakeholders to identify environmental conflicts, permitting requirements, and other factors to improve success.

Geospatial technology uses a range of tools to capture location data and visualize your business solutions. Whether you are using location data to solve business needs or using AI to run big data solutions more efficiently, the team at GeoDecisions, our geospatial technology division, can work with you to identify how to best use geospatial technology to meet your strategic objectives.

Visualization and Modeling

From AI to Building Information Modeling (BIM), we provide value to our clients so that they can achieve and surpass their goals.

Cloud-based design tools allow for productivity and innovation beyond traditional project design. These software products enable our team to provide better insight into design and its impact on the surrounding environment. For example, our team uses AI to create scenarios based on assigned criteria and then performs simulations to develop options and outcomes through generative design.

PIM leverages data through all phases of a project to create value for our clients. This includes building information modeling (BIM) workflows to design all vertical and horizontal aspects of a project and construction management and planning.

Utilizing the cloud and common data environments – regardless of location, tool, or file format – allows design teams, construction teams, and stakeholders to collaborate on data within the same unified platform, using various applications, tools, and processes.

At Gannett Fleming, our team uses PIM models for all phases of design and construction. These intelligent models are used to develop:

  • 3D renderings.
  • Clash detection.
  • Energy modeling.
  • Pedestrian simulation modeling.
  • Vehicle simulation modeling.

PIM allows all stakeholders to approach design, construction, and analysis with highly detailed insight into the project.

We work with our clients to develop and improve their BIM/PIM delivery standards and provide content standards that can be used for all projects. We work to ensure that the critical data that is needed from preliminary design to asset management and operations/maintenance is well-developed and documented throughout all the design and construction tools we use.

Reality Capture

Looking to capture detailed information on projects for vertical and horizontal design and engineering? Enter reality capture.

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) and drones enable our team to capture, process, and generate:

  • 3D point cloud models.
  • 3D photogrammetry models.
  • High resolution 360-degree panoramic photo viewers, and more.

We can complete a full scan to BIM to create highly accurate PIM models by utilizing these models for design, construction, and analysis. Reality capture builds smarter designs and solves design challenges, resulting in more coordinated and efficient design, construction, and turnover processes.
