BIM Accelerator Program
BCG’s holistic approach to digital transformation helps clients unleash the full potential of 3D building information modeling (BIM)—and ultimately improve project returns by 20%.
Massive infrastructure projects challenge governments, transportation authorities, real estate developers, and engineering and construction firms worldwide. BCG provides the building blocks that public- and private-sector clients need to succeed.
Profound shifts in urbanization trends demand profoundly different approaches to infrastructure. Governments, for example, have come to view infrastructure as a key driver of both economic growth and citizen well-being , while the private sector is under increasing pressure to tap smart technologies and pursue green infrastructure.
At the same time, construction projects have grown larger, riskier, and more complex—even as budgets for capital project management face challenges globally. As a result, infrastructure players need help delivering on time and on budget while rethinking how new construction projects and capital projects are selected, executed, and managed.
BCG’s infrastructure consulting experts help governments and other organizations overcome the challenges related to planning and implementing infrastructure strategy. We engage across the public and private sectors to help organizations capture new opportunities and respond to evolving infrastructure industry trends.
Engineering and Construction
The engineering and construction industry generates 6% of global GDP and employment. Tapping into this engine for economic growth requires that project owners—typically governments—possess a clear vision of emerging trends in the industry and a commitment to bold decision making.
Our team comprises a deep roster of practitioners from the engineering and construction industry. Over the past five years, we have delivered more than 600 projects around the world. We remain at the forefront of the trends that are reshaping the industry, such as advanced building materials and construction methods, onsite lean operations, and smart technologies.
We serve clients across the entire continuum of the engineering and construction industry.
Real estate is the largest asset class in the world. But despite its impressive scale, the industry has historically been slow to embrace innovation—a problem that has persisted even as it has entered a prolonged period of disruption and unprecedented change. BCG aids players of all types in both capitalizing on and defending against the emerging trends.
BCG’s global team of real estate experts brings deep experience to all phases of the industry lifecycle.

Our teams go beyond technical solutions to address the unprecedented global impact of climate change on transportation systems. We also deliver a shared vision and strategy as well as action plans that can be implemented to build resilience into transportation infrastructure.
BCG research shows that fewer than half of all acquisitions generate value. As the sector consolidates, therefore, engineering and construction companies will require both a strategic approach to M&A and a tactical approach to integration.
We ensure that project owners and contractors unlock value through such methodologies as lean construction and BIM.
Companies can safeguard employees while also improving productivity—here’s how.
Governments can support the industry not just for its own sake, but also as part of a broader transformational response.
