Engineering Planning & Studies
Effective master planning and capital improvement planning (CIP) are critical for today’s utilities to provide efficient, sustainable, and affordable services. Master plans and CIPs are strategic plans devised to guide utilities through projects and operations. The plans advise on capital projects and equipment purchasing, providing a planning schedule and options for financing. The end result should be efficient utilities and projects that maximize investments. MBC provides master planning and capital improvement planning for utilities and clients to make the best use of their systems.
