Strategic Planning is the systematic process of envisioning a desired future, and translating this vision into broadly defined goals or objectives and a sequence of steps to achieve them. In contrast to long-term planning (which begins with the current status and lays down a path to meet estimated future needs); strategic planning begins with the desired-end and works backward to the current status.
At Equipoise, strategic planning is a fundamental part of every project from day one. Equipoise personnel strive to achieve this concept in every facet of the project from day-to-day management to communications with regulatory personnel. This approach to project management and implementation provides focused, integrated and cost-effective decision making.

Remediation merged with Site Redevelopment
Problem: The site was to be sold and redeveloped within 18 months of the initial discussions with Client. The Client required that the known ground water contamination have a technical solution designed, approved by the regulatory agency, and installed and operating prior to the property transaction.
Strategy: Identify critical path items within the schedule and reverse engineer the remediation selection technology to by pass the un?controllable aspects of the schedule (waiting period for regulatory agency approvals and permits).
Result: Implemented an emerging remediation approach that did not require regulatory permit.
