Design assurance

With escalating complexity in engineering projects, the risk borne by all parties involved is increasingly significant. Once the design is constructed and enters into service, it can be too late to make changes without massive extra cost.

Design assurance

Independent design reviews highlight issues at an early stage, allowing us to recommend timely mitigations to facilitate designs that are right first time. Design Assurance also helps to fully assess a project right from its inception, supporting the development of a balanced set of requirements which is compatible with the overall level of risk and budget. This early assessment also extends to the review of tenders to ensure that they are capable of being technically delivered.

Identifying and mitigating risks early is part of our progressive assurance approach, giving you confidence that design will meet user requirements before production even starts and going on to enhance products through-life. We go on to support the safe operation of assets with audits and advice on operator guidance.
