Successful infrastructure projects need to be underpinned by strong financial and commercial advice throughout the lifecycle. In any project, some of the typical challenges include:

  • identifying business case options that are pragmatic and solution-oriented
  • designing a procurement strategy and commercial framework that balances value for money, market conditions and broader project objectives over an asset lifecycle
  • driving a transaction process that brings together commercial and technical requirements to deliver a successful contract outcome that will meet user expectations
  • ensuring that the contract can be managed for value and respond to changing circumstances.
  • using data to better understand user requirements, and embedding digital tools and capabilities into commercial solutions
  • ensuring any commercial solution reflects sustainability goals
  • balancing program and project investments to drive social, economic and environmental dividends to all stakeholders including the community, asset owners and investors.
