i-BUILD is developing new business models to improve the delivery of infrastructure systems and the services they provide.
These new business models will better exploit the technical and market opportunities that emerge from the increased interdependence of modern infrastructure systems.
i-BUILD focuses on infrastructure at the scale of neighbourhoods, towns and cities where infrastructure is most dense and interdependencies between infrastructures, economies and society are most profound.
As cities, local authorities and local enterprise partnerships are given more powers for infrastructure delivery and to raise finances it is crucial to develop robust new business models to develop infrastructure related business and growth locally - to the benefit of the nation.
i-BUILD is a consortium of three of the UK's leading universities.
