Civil Engineering

The Talis Civil Engineering Team distinguishes itself through its extensive experience with public works engineering for local governments and related industries. Talis is recognised as a market leader in providing consultancy services for the planning, development, operation and maintenance of public works infrastructure. Our experience covers feasibility assessment, preparation of business cases, design, documentation and contract administration and supervision of projects. Projects range from minor works, to major projects involving the development of multi-million dollar facilities.

We Understand Local Government
Every Talis team member has worked for local governments, either as employees or consultants. We are therefore very familiar with local government processes, including governance and procurement requirements and design standards. We understand the workings of local governments and of the requirements to successfully complete projects either for local governments or that require local and State government approvals.

We Understand Public Works Procurement
We have considerable experience and knowledge of procurement processes for public works projects. These range from small tenders for works or services to major, long term contracts for the provision of infrastructure and services, such as alliance contracts, public-private partnerships and design, build operate and maintain contracts.

Fit for Purpose Solutions
At Talis we recognise the necessity to develop project solutions that are fit for purpose and are compatible with the location and environment of the project. In many instances these factors can influence the project’s constructability and cost effectiveness. Detailed design development processes are used, often incorporating Value Engineering and Risk workshops. It always involves consultation with the client and other key stakeholders such as local communities and approval agencies.
