Budget Development for Capital Programme

Bringing a wealth of experience and ICA expertise to establish a capital programme work scope and develop budgeted solutions and innovation opportunities.

Implementation of automation technology and replacement of obsolete ICA (Instrumentation, Control and Automation) assets has become a major priority for Water Companies throughout the UK. ICA now represents a major percentage of capital budgets and with that brings the need to fully understand the risks and opportunities.
