Finance

Identifies actions to bring previously untapped sources of public and private money to projects, recognizing the importance of financing bankable sustainable infrastructure.

Build

Explores new approaches to advance productivity through leveraging the digital wave, applying lean construction, and innovating the contracting model.

Operate

Examines levers to maximize asset utilization, revenue opportunities, and customer experience in the digitized world.
