The need to simultaneously achieve efficiency in execution, transparency of communication, mutual trust between all project stakeholders, and cost and schedule predictability is unprecedented in the current global market. Current commercial delivery models often disincentivize mutual value creation as Owners must either hire an in-house team or outsource to large firms which can diminish project value.

Optimize Group was created to bridge this gap. Our approach is to foster a people- focused culture, dedicated to training & mentorship. This allows us to attract, retain and inspire a team of top talented people capable of meeting specific mining project needs. We provide each project with a customized Owners’ Team, incentivizing aligned objectives for stakeholders and ensuring optimized decisions that result in “best-for- project” solutions.

Our team of project facilitation specialists provides full-service technical and execution solutions for today’s mining clients. Our approach integrates waterfall and agile project management methodologies, the latest technologies, and risk-minimization to ensure that our clients and their stakeholders capture maximum project value. Our commitment is to work transparently, collaboratively, and with integrity so that our clients can gain a competitive advantage in today’s market. We establish long-term relationships with our clients, while also considering ongoing operational and community impacts, allowing us to deliver unparalleled long-term value creation in global mining projects.
