Our Infrastructure Advisory team supports client resourcing and expert advice needs across the full life cycle of major infrastructure investment planning and delivery, including public-private partnership (PPP) models. Our team of specialists has a wide range of practical experience gained from working and advising on the planning and delivery of major infrastructure projects in Australia and New Zealand. This includes Transport, Health, Justice, Education, Sport and Recreation, Arts and Culture and Major Events developments.

We have a philosophy that expertise comes with experience: Johnstaff’s team is made up of experienced practitioners and if you select our Infrastructure Advisory team, you get who you see in our proposal from the first meeting and throughout the project, not the office junior.  Each of our senior advisors has over 15 years of experience in leading the planning and execution of major infrastructure projects across the public and private sectors. Our team’s diverse public and private sector experience include professionals that have held executive roles in Australian and New Zealand governments, Tier 1 contractors, and multi-disciplinary project and design engineering houses.

Our approach is to ‘listen’ and ‘understand’ what the desired outputs are to allow us to help you create a genuine solution that is tailored to the unique situation of each investment need. The framework we put around this simple philosophy is what sets our offering apart. No one knows your business as you do, and we will treat your money as if it were our own.  This extends to our staff being embedded within our clients’ organisations when required.

Johnstaff also has a network of trusted partnership organisations, including financial, economic, technical and legal specialists. We draw on these relationships as needed to assemble comprehensive teams of project advisors that are adaptable to specific project needs.

Johnstaff believes that we offer an authentic point of difference in our approach and client relationship, that is, we refuse to be a post office box advisor that pulls a precedent off the shelf and merely tells the client how it is.
