We face several challenges; the obvious skills shortage, finance and funding for new runways, roads, rail and flood defences, ageing assets and their management and changes in government management of these resources.
Our consultants have extensive knowledge of all aspects of transportation and infrastructure and its project lifecycle from the financial, planning & design, construction, operations, management and new technologies that are coming to the sector.
Delivering high-quality infrastructure in a timely and cost-effective way is crucial to responding to the major national challenges such as; concerns about regional inequalities, productivity and the acute housing crisis in the country’s most economically successful areas, Brexit and climate change all loom large.
The UK is looking to improve its infrastructure policymaking in areas including transport (road, rail, aviation and ports) energy, flood defences, digital communication, waste and water, but whilst they are doing that, the transportation and infrastructure industry is facing a number of pressures that are re-shaping the sector. As an example; technology and mobility disruption bring both risks and opportunities to activities related to rail, roads, car parks, airports, and ports.
Increased demand and a lack of serious new investment for so many years has had its effect, and through our knowledge of the industry, we are able to provide our clients with the right people to help us face the challenges ahead, whilst at the same time taking care to maximise the career prospects of the professionals that we place.
