Infrastructure is the lifeblood of society. Above and beneath the ground, it’s the systems and structures that connect communities, businesses and people – it’s the foundation for progress and prosperity.
It’s a school, an airport, an underground station and the roads that take people and goods from A to B. It’s that open green space where we walk our dogs, and it’s what brings clean water to our homes at the turn of a tap. But, of course, designing great infrastructure takes technical expertise and precision. It also takes imagination and a desire to push technological boundaries to create places and spaces where people want to be.
From architects to civil engineers, water management consultants to ecologists, planners to ground engineers, bringing infrastructure to life involves different types of people with different types of skills. Most importantly, though, great infrastructure is realised through teamwork and a shared commitment to enrich lives and make a difference.
