Consulting Capabilities

Bluefield Research offers consulting research services to companies requiring custom guidance across the industrial and municipal water value chains.

Why use Bluefield for your custom research needs?

We do not start from scratch. Consulting engagements draw from Bluefield’s already existing data-backed market knowledge, network of industry professionals, and years of experience analyzing business strategies and market trends in water and other industry verticals. Our transparent research methodology and approach enables greater client visibility into the supporting data findings and analysis.

Who uses our consulting services?

Scaling interest in the water sector has attracted a number of potential market entrants from the financial, energy, and information & technology sectors, to name a few. At the same time, key decision-makers at EPC firms and water technology vendors are looking for ways to validate or reshape their current strategies in specific geographies and industry verticals.

How are projects structured? 

Project timelines typically range from two weeks to three months, depending on an agreed-upon scope and methodology. Because these are relationship-driven projects, we encourage a phased approach, in which key milestones– workshops and communications– are incorporated into the calendar. This allows clients to stay abreast of the project and adjust when needed.
