The great global infrastructure opportunity - Global construction survey 2012

Global Construction Survey 2012
Traditional general engineering providers and contractors are giving way to larger, more diversified businesses with specialised skills.
We are part of KPMG’s global Building, Construction & Real Estate network of experienced professionals. This network produces an annual global survey of the views of chief executives of global companies in the industry.

Current trends

New Zealand’s ageing infrastructure together with the hosting of the Rugby World Cup in 2011 has resulted in significant investment being made into a wide range of major projects in recent years. 
This growth has occurred against a downturn in the residential construction segment as the global financial crisis has impacted consumer confidence. 
The construction companies able to deliver major infrastructure projects headed into the recession and recovery with strong order books and the opportunity to secure more work as the government uses capital projects to inject stimulus into the economy. Others have been left with highly competitive tenders for the smaller commercial and residential projects available.
While stimulus funding has brought forward some critical projects, it is likely Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) will be required to complete some of the larger projects. 
KPMG’s Infrastructure Financing team is a leading international advisor to government and industry on PPPs. 
By their very nature, companies in this industry take on large and complex projects and are always seeking to improve their risk management and project delivery. This is where KPMG can help.
