THE FUTURE OF INFRASTRUCTURE
This report has been produced by AECOM in collaboration with Longitude. It is based on two main inputs.
First, we conducted a survey of 509 civil infrastructure professionals from three regions: APAC, Europe and North America. Please note, the APAC region consists entirely of 50 respondents from Australia; (qualitative interviews include representatives from the wider region, see below). Europe comprises 109 from the U.K., 45 from the Republic of Ireland, and five from Germany; and North America comprises 274 from the U.S. and 26 from Canada.
Respondents work in a range of sectors related to civil infrastructure. All respondents work on projects exceeding US$100 million, and 43 percent work on projects exceeding US$500 million.
The research was carried out online. Respondents were not compensated for their participation and AECOM was not identified as the research sponsor.
