SYSTRA provides strategic planning, funding and business case development services to help clients deliver essential urban, environmental, energy and transport infrastructure projects across the Australia and New Zealand.


Developing business cases, securing funding and evaluating impacts are key elements in the delivery of any major infrastructure or construction project. Local authorities and developers need to clearly demonstrate the impacts and benefits of any new scheme, including the long-term social, environmental, financial and economic implications.

Making a compelling case is vital to securing funding, and must take into account technical guidance, funding scheme criteria, regulatory compliance and stakeholder expectations. The policy, funding and strategy specialists at SYSTRA offer all the expertise required to help new energy, environmental, construction or transport infrastructure projects secure the approvals and funding they need.

Our Approach

SYSTRA has the multi-sector expertise to take the lead in all aspects of business case evaluation and delivery, policy development, scheme appraisal and prioritisation, and economic analysis.

SYSTRA plays a leading role in helping local authorities, regional agencies, private and public-sector clients to secure investment and support for a whole range of infrastructure and construction projects. These could include urban development schemes, building construction projects, environmental improvements, energy facilities or transport infrastructure.

Our support helps clients to develop robust strategies and proposals to meet the requirements of various funding mechanisms and government schemes. We understand the latest guidance, and have an excellent track record of success in high-profile funding programmes, such as Levelling Up.
