Capital Projects

Leading advice to help plan, manage and deliver large scale capital projects.

Growing global populations and accelerating urbanisation mean that demand for infrastructure projects will continue to grow. Mature economies will need to revitalise to stay competitive, and new economies will need to match their investment in infrastructure with their staggering population and economic growth.

We assist clients in both the public and private sectors to plan, manage and deliver large scale capital projects.  PwC combines engineering and finance skills, to serve the full asset lifecycle of capital projects and infrastructure.     

The challenge facing asset owners

All too often, capital projects are affected by cost and time overruns, or fail to meet their intended business outcomes. 

Up to 70% of capital projects are unsuccessful because due to a deviation in:

  • Budget
  • Planning deadline
  • Operational performance
  • Significant execution time increase or scope increases.

Delivering value throughout the asset life cycle

We provide comprehensive project and programme management services aimed at achieving results through the design, delivery and operational phases of asset development.   

We offer our clients a range of services across an established framework:
