Downer is a leader in asset management across Australia and New Zealand, servicing customers across our Urban Services markets - Transport, Utilities, Facilities and Asset Services.
We have many long-term asset and data intensive projects being managed by our experienced teams on the ground who understand our customers’ assets.
We also understand that many of our customers are under increasing pressure to get more out of their assets. They need to manage financial constraints, forecast lifetime costs, limit unnecessary maintenance and future-proof their assets. More than ever, they need intelligent partners who can provide data-driven solutions to enable their assets to optimise business objectives.
Downer’s Asset and Data Management Office (ADMO) promotes best practice and continuous improvement in asset management and data analytics to improve lifecycle management, reliability, return on capital and deliver better outcomes for our customers.
We provide innovative solutions to fit our customers’ business needs and maximise the returns from their assets.
ISO 55001 sets the benchmark for best practice asset management, and Downer is committed to ensuring our group business systems are aligned to this standard.
In July 2015, Downer was the first organisation to achieve certification to ISO 55001 in Australia and New Zealand, for Utilities Asset Management Services at the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) water treatment plant.
Since then, Downer has achieved certification to ISO 55001 across multiple urban service industries, including rollingstock and rail infrastructure, road network management, critical infrastructure and in integrated facilities management across health, education and corrections.
For example, in October 2020, through our work via the Spotless business and the Southbank Education and Training Precinct PPP, we achieved Australia’s first Accredited ISO 41001 Certification for Facility Management (FM). This certification is further endorsement of our credibility and leadership in efficiently and effectively aligning our Facility Management services to drive value across our customers’ facilities and achieving industry excellence by further enhancing our Asset Management and Facilities Management capabilities. This will support our customers gain a competitive edge, drive value across their facilities and ensure their workplace is a safe environment.
Global standards organisation ISO.org has released how our alignment to ISO55001 asset management contributes directly to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
ISO 55001:2014 contributes to the following SDGs:
