New approaches to capital delivery – best practice case studies

16 May 2023
New approaches to capital delivery

Project management and capital delivery teams are responding to huge increases in the scale and speed at which new infrastructure needs to be delivered - all while driving down cost and cutting carbon emissions. Join this session to explore how three flagship capital projects are applying fresh approaches to technology, processes, partnerships and people to supercharge their delivery capabilities. Key focus topics will include: 

  • How digital innovation can better equip capital delivery and project management teams to meet current and future challenges 

  • How to mitigate planning constraints and design-out delays on critical capital projects 

  • How new approaches to procurement can build confidence and readiness in the supply chain 

  • How major projects engage with communities and can leave a lasting legacy
