The state of aging infrastructure around the globe, especially in developed economies, is driving urgency to find new funding and construction approaches to build — better, faster and less expensive projects.

Louis Berger is helping concessionaires manage the lifecycle of their infrastructure assets through a full suite of financial, economic and technical advisory services.

We work with contractors to deliver advisory, tender design and final design services for large-scale infrastructure projects worldwide.

By drawing on our core competencies in planning, engineering, construction management and economics, we provide innovative financing and project delivery solutions that help clients identify risk and cost-saving opportunities for alternative project delivery methods, including:

  • Public-Private Partnership (PPP)
  • Design‐Build (DB)
  • Indefinite Delivery/ Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contracting
  • Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)

Our methodology helps clients identify risk and cost-saving opportunities early in a project by integrating design and construction expertise with an understanding of operations and maintenance practices to adapt to changing site conditions.
