What is SAVI? The Structures Asset Valuation and Investment Tool (SAVI) supports asset owners, operators and managers with the management of their structure stock.

It can be used to: carry out valuation of structures stock, develop prioritised short-term programmes of work, and develop long-term asset management plans

Planning and estimating expenditure requirements alongside long-term asset performance is essential to improve the management of roads and services. These estimates can be used to determine the likely performance of the asset so that future budget can be prioritised accordingly.
