echelon was appointed to review the current asset management plan and develop a new strategy focusing on dealing with difficult properties, developing relationships with local authority partners and giving A2 Dominion visibility in the many boroughs in which it works.
echelon carried out a five-stage asset management review which involved assessing existing documents and developing a new strategy. It started with a scoping process designed to ascertain the client’s needs moving forward and an asset management review group was set up to establish a hierarchy of needs and drivers.
Following the review, echelon built a ground-up structure for a new asset management strategy. Existing documents were reviewed, and a gap analysis carried out, to ensure that they were fully up to date and that they captured the organisation’s aspirations while reflecting what is practically deliverable. Additional sections were created as required and new documents were drawn up with input from the asset management review group. A five-year asset management plan, which was designed to be able to evolve, was put in place enabling A2 Dominion to take a more holistic, strategic approach to managing and planning for its assets.
