why choose us

Water Infrastructure Science & Engineering (WISE) is a specialist engineering consultancy in water and wastewater systems. The WISE business principle is to design only what is needed:

Efficient, uniform and dependable water operations

Deferring capital investment is an objective of our astute engineering designs while delivering your project objectives.
From concept planning through to aged asset rehabilitation, your project will maximise utilisation of existing assets and solutions are designed to curtail the overall infrastructure requirements, including safety and sustainability.

Accurate scoping

WISE point of difference: to work with Clients to accurately identify the root cause of issues for resolution.
Up front, specific and accurate scoping ensures value for money during the early design process. This is the project strategy. This may require base monitoring data, technical definition, regulatory framework or compliance definition, or similar. Data based decision making prevents variations during design and construction and provides a conclusive solution.

Our Speciality

Water Strategy

Defining the overall operating objectives in alignment with your corporate policy and strategy provides the basis for equipment selection and arrangements that inherently deliver those objectives.

WISE has relevant experience and expertise for refinement or development of corporate strategies to deliver environmental and social governance excellence.

This is the project stage in which you can achieve the greatest impact in project outcomes – cost reduction, environmental protection, movement beyond regulatory compliance, increased reliability, and further.

This will include preliminary design through to detailed design and drawings, and tender documentation.

We provide stop-gate approval processes which checks the project alignment with the client intent or Business Case, and risk management progression. Between these design phases, weekly or fortnightly meetings and reporting will keep you informed of discoveries and decision points.

The preliminary design phase can incorporate regulatory approvals applications in parallel with the detailed design works, if you don’t have internal or alternative resources.

Asset & Construction Management

Asset management planning is required for utility operating licenses under the Western Australian Economic Regulatory Authority. We assist in developing asset management plans to facilitate asset and financial planning for license compliance and for financial optimisation of assets.

Asset management can include forecast growth planning and defining the scheduling and capacity of asset upgrades.

Construction management by WISE offers project engineering amendment on site for discovered conditions. It is rarely cost effective to investigate every site condition for a totally risk-free design. By delivering a full understanding of the underlying design principles, the project intent and applied permits we know what aspects of the design are negotiable or non-negotiable on site.
