Book Description

This book examines complex challenges in managing major strategic economic and social infrastructure projects. It is divided into four primary themes: value-based approach to infrastructure systems appraisal, enabling planning and execution, financing and contracting strategies for infrastructure systems and digitising major infrastructure delivery.

Within these four themes, the chapters of the book cover:

  • the value and benefits of infrastructure projects
  • planning for resilient major infrastructure projects
  • sustainable major infrastructure development and management, including during mega events
  • improving infrastructure project financing
  • stakeholder engagement and multi-partner collaborations
  • delivering major infrastructure projects effectively and efficiently
  • whole-lifecycle performance, operations and maintenance
  • relationship risks on major infrastructure projects
  • public-private partnerships, design thinking principles, and innovation and technology.

By drawing on insights from their research, the editors and contributors bring a fresh perspective to the transformation of major strategic infrastructure projects. This text is designed to help policymakers and investors select and prioritise their infrastructure needs beyond the constraining logic of political cycles. It offers a practical set of recommendations for governments on attracting private capital for infrastructure projects while creating clear social and economic value for their citizens. Through theoretical underpinning, empirical data and in-depth informative global case studies, the book presents an essential resource for students, researchers, practitioners and policy-makers interested in all aspects of strategic infrastructure planning, project management, construction management, engineering and business management.
