The ailing state of much of the U.S. infrastructure has emerged as a hot topic of political debate and business speculation. As a result of The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which was signed into law in November 2021, infrastructure spending is expected to increase in key industries segments:

• Roads & Bridges
• Passenger & Freight Rail
• Public Transit
• Airports
• Ports
• High-Speed Internet
• Power Infrastructure
• Electric/Gas Vehicles
• Drinking Water

In order to maximize returns from this unparalleled infusion of capital investment, government agencies must find ways to accelerate the planning, design, and construction process, by early engagement of the requisite subject matter expertise, and proactive development of risk-sharing partnerships with industry. A thorough, objective review of requirements suitability, cost estimating rationale, and schedule realism can go a long way on a constrained budget toward assuring that project goals are affordable and achievable.

Over the past 25 years, SVS has had an extraordinary track record in assisting municipal finance functions, operations managers, and contractor teams to organize and accelerate projects toward timely and successful projects.
