Pushing Boundaries

We employ innovation to engineer success.

As the world continues to change, one can merely sit back and watch, or be a catalyst for that change. From industry leading technologies and services, to our processes and beyond, Pennoni is constantly innovating to accomplish more. This principle is fundamental to our culture and allows us to be proactive to the ever-changing needs of our clients and the world at large.

Asset Management

It has never been more important for assets we designed yesterday to be managed and cared for today. However, this is only possible by using a digital design process or by creating a digital twin of existing structures. It’s equally important for those digital twins to live in synchronicity with their real-world counterparts as alterations and repairs are made. By utilizing modern digital design platforms with data collection and modelling capabilities, all the necessary tools exist to effectively manage today’s assets. And by implementing and maintaining a management program, our infrastructure can benefit from extended life expectancy and increased reliability and safety.
