This project will support infrastructure suppliers to be ready for Project 13, a fundamental change in how the sector’s clients deliver high performing infrastructure.

Project 13 was launched in May 2018. It seeks to develop a new business model – based on an enterprise, not on traditional transactional arrangements – to boost certainty and productivity in delivery, improve whole life outcomes in operation and support a more sustainable, innovative, highly skilled industry.

A major challenge for the roll out of Project 13 will be training and development of the workforce to deliver improved productivity. As Project 13 is a new initiative, there is no existing training provision.

The group’s proposal is to develop and deliver a Boosting Infrastructure Productivity syllabus focusing on Project 13, with a sustainable model that can continue after the funded period.
