How to Deliver the Infrastructure Necessary to Level-Up Britain
At the Public Policy Projects’ Infrastructure Hub events at the party conferences, the Chancellor and Ministers showed their commitment to deliver the infrastructure necessary to level-up communities across Britain. The economy faces unprecedented challenges caused by the pandemic, and the Government has committed to the delivery of major infrastructure projects including the upgrade of UK motorways, HS2, improvements to rail, building a green recovery and leading the world on wind power. All these major infrastructure projects require deeper thinking from a delivery perspective. As a nation, there is a need to think about retention of learnings and skills to ensure that major infrastructure becomes an integral to UK economic growth in a post-Brexit world. Chaired by Co-Chair of Public Policy Projects Infrastructure Board, Stephen Hammond MP, this discussion is a prime opportunity to discuss ways of delivering on the Government’s manifesto commitments with one of the leading minds in UK infrastructure, Chief Executive of the Infrastructure Projects Authority (IPA), Nick Smallwood.
Nick Smallwood is the Chief Executive Officer of the Infrastructure and Projects Authority and Head of Government’s Project Delivery Function. Nick is the former Vice President for Projects Engineering and Chief Projects Engineer at Shell. He joins the IPA with 37 years’ experience of managing complex project portfolios and having developed Shell’s Global Project Academy. At Shell, Nick was accountable for managing how projects were delivered and a variety of significant improvement programmes. Nick was also a trustee of the board of the Association for Project Management (APM) until November 2019, where he contributed to the overall development of the UK’s project management profession.
