EDAB Consulting Pty Ltd is primarily focussed on working closely with key stakeholders to enable their informed decision-making in the areas of infrastructure - strategy, policy, investment and associated change management. All types of infrastructure are included – from ‘hard’ infrastructure ( such as physical networks and associated assets, buildings, and equipment) through to ‘soft’ infrastructure (such as institutional arrangements, organisation structures and systems) together with associated interdependencies. Also all decision types – initial ‘start-up’ through to those targeted at productivity improvement of existing enterprises.
EDAB Consulting Pty Ltd advocates early engagement when the opportunity to influence the long-run (life cycle) cost of infrastructure is at its greatest. In simplified schematic form:
