Infrastructure and Capital Programmes

Leading business transformation for high profile, complex and large capital programmes

We support our clients in shaping, designing and delivering transformation journeys for their Capital Programmes: long-term, capital-intensive investment projects with a purpose to build upon, add to, or improve an asset.

We are currently seeing a ‘golden age’ for investment in infrastructure and capital projects across both the public and private sectors; annual global infrastructure investment is expected to rise from $2.5tr today to $3.8tr by 2040. Today’s major projects are increasingly complex and under significant scrutiny. Scale, duration and complexity are growing, as are expectations around predictability and control. No-one likes surprises; the unexpected is unacceptable whether from a HSSE, cost, schedule or quality perspective. Tighter control is essential, to minimise risk and provide delivery confidence.
