The infrastructure industry is experiencing a period of significant change.

Governments and the private sector continue to face ESG pressures – more so than ever before, the industry must consider sustainability in developments to promote efficiency and to minimise pollution and waste. Advances in digitalisation have enabled improvements in the integration of smart systems, however funding and supply chain challenges have made this integration complicated. Changes in standard contract delivery such as the growth of PPP partnerships are also becoming more common in an effort to manage projects and share risks, meanwhile demographic changes to the population, including population growth, is driving unprecedented sector investment.
