Massive infrastructure projects challenge governments, transportation authorities, real estate developers, and engineering and construction firms worldwide. Our infrastructure consulting team enables clients to build, advance, and move by optimizing infrastructure development, cities, and the movement of people and goods.

Profound shifts in urbanization trends demand profoundly different infrastructure strategies. 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.

Our Approach to Infrastructure Consulting

Our infrastructure consulting team employs BCG’s deep and renowned experience in strategy, organization, commercial excellence, and operational excellence. We also offer unique infrastructure expertise in:

  • Sustainability & Climate Resilience. 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.
  • M&A and Post-Merger Integration. 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.
  • Large Capital Project Management. We ensure that project owners and contractors unlock value through such methodologies as lean construction and BIM.
  • Digital & Analytics. We bring our clients robust digital programs that support organization transformation as well as the processes for bidding, construction, and postconstruction asset management.
  • Investment & Financing. We help finance transportation and other infrastructure projects through a combination of public and private funding sources.
