The past decade has seen an unprecedented number of infrastructure projects permeate global markets in a range of sectors, typically with unique or complex elements and their own set of opportunities and challenges. In many jurisdictions, investing in infrastructure is increasingly being seen as a way to boost economies, providing job opportunities and acting as a catalyst for growth.

Clients need to work with teams who can deliver first-rate expertise and provide innovative solutions to address complex issues and achieve commercial outcomes that add value to their business. Henry Davis York prides itself on doing just this throughout all stages of a project, from concept to implementation and the resolution of any issues arising during the project lifecycle.

We partner with a wide range of market leading public and private organisations, providing strategic advice on the procurement and delivery of all forms of infrastructure projects, from the privatisation of government infrastructure assets to the delivery of greenfield and brownfield infrastructure. Our team members have a long history of advising clients on many landmark, high profile and transformational infrastructure projects in Australia. As a result, we understand the different dynamics required to develop and implement infrastructure projects in their various guises, including PPP projects.
