A to Z of Fitzpatrick Advisory
From the provision of technical advisory services to lenders and investors on large PFI/PPP schemes, to working with local authorities to embed the new code of Practice for Highways Infrastructure Maintenance
How can local authorities do 'Big Data' and Smart Cities if they can't do Small Data around Highways maintenance? We advise local authority clients on how best to get smarter using the digital information all around them.
‘COnnected Network VEhicles in Real Time’. Fitzpatrick Advisory is working with the Transport Technology Forum to share knowledge from over 26 local authority research schemes about the impact of connected vehicles and future autonomous vehicles.
Think of your Digital Assistant at home, and then imagine one that works for Highways and Network Management. DASHA (Digital Assistant Service for Highways Authorities) is the exciting new development for Highways Authorities, which can receive and aggregate data and information in any format best suited to your network management needs.
Are you ready to adapt your future infrastructure to future connected and automated mobility needs (CAM)? What is your kerbside spatial strategy for electric, for parking and everything else?
THE FITZ Index
An annual industry index reflecting the confidence and opinions about the performance and potential for growth in the Highways sector. You can help us develop the power of THE FITZ INDEX by becoming a regular contributor.
A technique to match the data collected by driven LIDAR with the inventory held in a local authority infrastructure data management system.
what’s the big iDEA?
Digital is not just about technology; your revolution starts with your people. In Roads©® is about working with what you’ve already got, smarter, and comprises a confidential 3 day initial Digital Efficiency Assessment (iDEA) examining the effectiveness and connectivity of your existing maintenance processes and their potential.
The advent of digital doesn’t replace people or their jobs, it frees them up to make better decisions.
over 700 Kilometres
The length of the Smart Motorways projects we have been working on with Highways England since 2016.
Fitzpatrick Advisory has extensive experience of successful Highways and Infrastructure project and programme management all over the world. We also help deliver quality audits and assurance exercises on projects ‘in flight’ to ensure they will achieve their goals.
The end-user is the customer, not the Road. We shape and advise our clients to break away from conventional thinking about assets and maintenance being the consumer of budgets, and help them to start thinking about the customer and better network management. See DASHA and In Roads.
We understand whole life and safety outcomes, so we always approach advisory commissions from an integrated and coherent perspective.
Quality of thought and design; quality of relationships with our suppliers and our clients; and the quality of our outcomes.
Rapid Engineering Model
We have worked with Smart Motorways’ Rapid Engineering Model or REM, from the start. Not to be confused with the rock band at Fitzpatrick Advisory we are shiny happy people all year round.
Smart Motorway Programme
Smart Motorways Programme (SMP), and Smart Motorways Alliance (SMA). Since 2016 Fitzpatrick Advisory has provided design management services, from concept to construction, to Highways England.
People move, on foot, by bike, car, bus, tram and train and all competing for space and time. We understand that urban infrastructure needs to sustainably serve connected and automated mobility needs, no matter how technology evolves in the future.
Value for money – and Vision
VfM isn’t just about economy and service cuts, its about efficiency and effectiveness. Fitzpatrick Advisory works to make sure your vision for the service clearly reflects your policy objectives, that your strategy is deliverable and your tactical approach will work. We also help make sure the costs of your vision and strategy are clearly understood and accurate.
Z is for the height coordinate, the one usually associated with the latitude and longitude used in cartesian coordinates. Will the argument about road condition data capture in the future be about accuracy or timeliness? Ask us how to get ready for the future.
