What is "active asset management"?
Too often project sponsors focus on the initial phases of a project and lose interest when the design and build phase is complete and the project operational. At Amber, we know that the operation and maintenance of our projects is just as important as delivering a high quality facility. This is why we have a comprehensive team of professionals dedicated to the careful ongoing management of our projects and our relationships with our public sector partners.
