Regardless of the types of infrastructure that will be invested in – airports, highways, rail, bridges, transit, etc. – one critical aspect is to gather enough input in the delivery process from a diverse base of stakeholders. This collaborative effort should include planners, designers, builders, communities, and so on, to deliver a facility that makes the most sense for addressing new and evolving constraints.
