About this item
Managing Infrastructure Projects provides students with a comprehensive account of how to ensure that infrastructure construction, delivery, and maintenance is executed both as a viable business concern and as an attractive investment option.
Taking a mulit-stakeholder approach, the book examines the industry from the perspectives of multiple players, synthesising the concerns that each brings to the table, while also exploring ways to address the demands and requirements of each. Both globalization and environmental issues have become central concerns for infrastructure development and Hussain and McKellar present business models that combines the strengths of both the private and public sectors in formal partnership arrangements that tackle these issues head-on. Case studies help students grasp the key concepts and themes discussed throughout the book.
The interdisciplinary approach that this book takes will help students of management, public policy, and urban planning understand why new business models that encourage private-public partnerships are so important.
