Securing infrastructure funding for communities like yours

Our Proven Process

  • Needs & Data Audit

    We work with you to define what is important for your community and where you are now.

  • Asset Lifecycle Modeling

    We take your existing data and build models to show where the needs are—not just for today, but also for the future.

  • Identify Projects & Align Funding

    Needs are bundled into actionable projects that will be ready for funding. Projects are analyzed across multiple dimensions to determine the best funding source. This often frees up money so more projects can be completed.

  • Financial Modeling

    Financial analysis, modeling, and rate studies help local governments understand their expense and revenue streams in a deeper way so that they can gain a clear picture of their short- and long-term financial responsibilities and plan for the future with certainty.

  • Acquire Funding

    From grant & loan applications to rate studies and council presentations, we provide the services and tools for you to succeed.

Do you have a list of all your possible projects, with each one aligned to the best funding source?

Financial Asset Management builds better communities

Citizens expect consistent service. We provide data-driven proof that you are putting their dollars to the best use.

Predict asset needs 20 or more years in the future

WithersRavenel uses state-of-the-art software to analyze your assets and show the long-term impact of funding on the state of your your assets and infrastructure.

Break the cycle of underfunding

Deferred maintenance may offer short-term savings, but it’s generally expensive in the long run. We highlight likely failures in infrastructure, and then develop a roadmap that prevents these failures.

Align needs across different assets

If you have multiple asset types such as streets, water, sewer, stormwater, etc., we align these needs into common corridor projects to minimize project costs.

“Our department’s mission is to provide essential services to the citizens of Sanford in the most courteous, convenient and cost-effective manner. We needed a tool that enhanced our capital improvement plan to better understand the future impact of planned rehabilitation and replacement projects. With Capital Predictor we have a powerful model of our sewer infrastructure that helps us make decisions with our citizens in mind.”

Vic Czar, Director of Public Works, City of Sanford
