RMIT Infrastructure Asset Assessment

Cardno’s Urban Infrastructure team completed an infrastructure asset assessment project for RMIT University campuses, evaluating asset service capacity, condition and compliance.

The pattern of university land aims to make optimum use of what land is available and appropriate for development within the university’s boundaries. University land is limited by the need to avoid low lying areas, which are prone to flooding. Additionally, the cost of servicing a highly dispersed arrangement of facilities can place unacceptable demands upon the university’s financial resources.  

Covering the City, Bundoora and Brunswick campuses, our team drew on their extensive industry experience, to provide best practice support for asset management systems and performance operations.


Cardno specialize in delivering asset management services through all phases of the asset life cycle.

Cardno’s technical services were supported by our Geospatial team, using large scale asset data capture tools and cloud-based mapping solutions such as location intelligence and data management, to provide analyses and present data that supported confident decision-making across the whole asset life cycle.

Asset information, including the asset’s condition, is essential to support a range of important university investment decisions. 

The comprehensive and accurate information delivered by Cardno has led to a better understanding of asset performance and enabled evidence-based decision-making. This has helped to improve the ability to identify poor performing assets, support new asset investment and use the asset information to develop long-term strategic and financial plans.
