33rd Annual Conference: Major Projects – Opportunities for a New Government

Summary

The UK major projects industry is entering one of its most buoyant periods. Projects such as Thames Tideway Tunnel, Crossrail and HS2 will be some of the largest projects ever undertaken, but they will be set against a backdrop of ever increasing cost scrutiny by the new Government. Through the 33rd Annual Conference the members of the Major Projects Association considered how Government could navigate a spending review without compromising the likely success of the Government Major Projects Portfolio. Discussions centred
on five key topics: improving productivity; reducing costs; improving agility; incorporating innovation; and building a sustainable and professional workforce.
