With rapidly changing and uncertain operating conditions in the infrastructure sector, asset owners are looking to ensure business continuity while simultaneously building resilience in their assets.

Mr Maslen said, particularly during these unprecedented times, there’s an imperative for clients to adapt their investment and management priorities, as well as re-establishing working platforms in new ways.
“I’m passionate about helping our clients get a better understanding of their challenges, and craft holistic solutions to address these,” said Mr Maslen.
“My roles on the Asset Management Council (AUS) Body of Knowledge Thought Leadership Team, as a Certified Asset Management Assessor (CAMA) in ISO55000 through World Partners in Asset Management, and as a Foundation Editor for the Civil Engineers UK Asset Management Journal, allows me to approach challenges differently, by leveraging trends and industry best practice to deliver better outcomes for our communities.”
WSP National Executive of Strategic Asset Management Michael Van Doornik said the WSP Advisory Group delivers value by working in partnership with its clients to identify opportunities that maximise the service value of their assets by managing risk and maximising performance.
