Delivering solutions


The Economics, Planning & Development  team is the cornerstone of AEC. Over time we have found that economics, more than any other discipline, plays a fundamental role in information analysis, interpretation and the generation of solutions to business, government and not-for-profit challenges. Economics forms the foundation for many of today’s business decisions. Prior to embarking on a new venture it is important each business thoroughly investigate the range of opportunities available, their risks and subsequent returns.


Increasingly, economics needs to be combined with planning and development to ensure that in today’s complex environment, solutions make commercial sense. It is the practical combination of economics and planning that yields successful developments.


AEC provides practical and real solutions to our clients based on sound economic fundamentals and rigorous analysis. Applying general economic and research principles along with a tried and tested business acumen has resulted in AEC building a wealth of experience in many fields which allows us to provide practical solutions to a broad spectrum of challenges.
