Estates & Infrastructure

The ongoing rationalisation of the public estate has led to pioneering new schemes in shared services, agile working and the development of more modern workplaces. Given the sheer size of the estate and the inconsistency in practice, the potential gains of transformation remains huge. Alongside this, effective management and delivery of infrastructure assets has increased in importance as a way of delivering more regionally balanced growth and overcoming the UK’s anaemic productivity growth.
