we design

with purpose

Here’s how

We combine proven design principles with industry-leading technology and an advisory approach to deliver purpose-built solutions that make a difference — to people, places and communities.

Our work is underpinned by strong design and analysis principles and an approach that requires agility and collaboration, to deliver exceptional outcomes, every time.









what we do

We listen, we challenge, and we deliver. Our diverse team draws on decades of multi-sector experience to provide end-to-end capability across established and emerging engineering disciplines, advanced digital offerings and advisory services.

Asset Advisory

While financial resources are becoming increasingly constrained, asset owners are presented with the challenge of balancing asset performance, risk and cost. This becomes more important frontline assets, where asset availability and capacity is integral to revenue and other key commercial performance indicators.

Effective asset management also requires a view across the asset lifecycle to realise opportunities and extract value through project conception, design, procurement, construction, maintenance, renewal and disposal.

With our roots as an engineering consultancy that operates across a range of market sectors, we leverage our depth of engineering capability and experience across the entire asset lifecycle to ensure better technical and commercial outcomes.

At ADG, what separates us from our competitors is not just our capability across the spectrum of asset management strategy, integrity and performance, but the ability to leverage state-of-the-art technology and digital solutions. This in-turn enables our clients to better understand the performance of their assets and make more informed capital investment decisions.

We believe in building strong relationships with our valued clients and asset owners, to ensure that we understand their drivers and can provide tangible solutions that are aligned to their organisational goals. ADG provides a suite of asset advisory services to assist asset owners in maximising the return on their investment and driving long-term benefits.
