SPOT—Strategic Planning Optimization Tools

Los Angeles, CA

The future depends on actions we take today. By deploying leading-edge work processes and technology tools and applications, we help our clients become more efficient as they execute their projects and achieve their goals. VHB’s Strategic Planning Optimization Tools (SPOT) gives our clients a future-focused solution to develop, plan, prioritize, track, and maintain programs like sustainability, alternatives analyses, and environmental impact studies. As our clients look to the future, SPOT supports initiatives that safeguard the long-term viability of their assets.

Clients like Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), the authority that owns and operates Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Van Nuys Airport (VNY) use sustainability planning to increase facility performance, reduce environmental effects, and enhance the benefits they offer to the communities they serve. Utilizing SPOT, VHB worked with LAWA to collect and analyze data, develop meaningful content, and design Annual Sustainability Reports. In addition to the report itself, we developed collateral and tools, including a database of key performance indicator data, display boards, and skill sheets that allow the client to have a better understanding of their programs. SPOT gave LAWA a complete dashboard to keep relevant information easily accessible and understandable so that as these programs move forward, smarter decisions can be made.
