Our Asset Management Services Offer

The Colas Asset Management approach combines experience from the work we’ve completed for UK Local Authorities, Highways England contracts, as well as in Ireland and Australia. We use our Enterprise Asset Management solution to support and deliver smart decisions and help us provide the right solution for any long term network planning requirement.  

We know that the key to successful outcome focused delivery is holding quality working relationships with our customers and suppliers. This is achieved through self-delivery - our core Asset Management concept and an efficient way of delivering an exemplary service that is of excellent value and cost-effective. Our intelligence-led outcome driven approach uses local resources, allowing us  to proactively manage network maintenance, supported and assured by our national infrastructure.

We are industry-leading investors in research and development, safety solutions, delivery techniques and specialist solutions.

Close working relationships are key to delivering a successful contract. Working with Highways England, we drive value by innovative cost effective solutions, managing delivery focused on the needs of the asset and long term management, making sure the client’s goals are met.
