Strategic infrastructure

While the role infrastructure can play in positively influencing economic growth is widely accepted, delivering such major investments has never been more challenging to both the public and private sectors.

In many parts of the world, ageing infrastructure is suffering from decades of under maintenance, while in others the demand for new infrastructure, fuelled by a rapid expansion of an increasingly wealthy urban middle class, is stretching the resources of even the most affluent governments.

Many are turning to the private sector to design, build, fund and operate these facilities and yet the private sector is struggling with limited access to debt and growing risk aversion from investors. Now, more than ever, investment decisions need to be based on robust analysis and informed advice.

Our strategic infrastructure expertise includes the following services:

  • Appraisal - including cost benefit analysis and criteria analysis, especially for the public sector
  • Evaluation - including business case, especially for the private sector
  • Payment mechanisms - including regulation, contracts and modelling
  • Risk and arbitration - including due diligence for lenders and secondary investors and expert witness
