Infrastructure in the U.S.
As a result of serious under-investment over a period of many years, U.S. infrastructure assets have reached the end of their serviceable life.
As a result, around $1.6 trillion needs to be invested over the next five years just to return assets to safe, operable standards.
Through President Obama's stimulus plan, there is now federal support to progress infrastructure improvements.
The U.S. infrastructure market is incredibly diverse and covers a number of sub-sectors such as roads, bridges, dams, clean water and wastewater assets, navigable waterways and railways.
Our Infrastructure Business Sector Experience
We have infrastructure sector experience through providing construction management and owner's representative roles for water sector clients including City of Nogales, Arizona, and City of Tulare, California.
