Capital Projects and Infrastructure

Capital project success through execution excellence

Construction projects have become highly complex and involve several inherent risks and challenges. Managing these projects requires a wide range of skills and competencies for different functional areas including engineering, finance, planning, procurement, construction, contract administration, information technology (IT), quality, and environment, health and safety (EHS), in addition to sectoral knowledge. The challenge lies in making these multidisciplinary functional areas work together seamlessly for the efficient delivery of projects.

Our team is equipped to deliver value to stakeholders across sectors in infrastructure and industrial projects ‒ government officials, developers and operators, contractors, fund managers, investors and corporate development executives. PwC can help your organisation confront the challenges and exploit the opportunities inherent in planning and executing capital infrastructure projects. Our industry and sector experts and project professionals work collaboratively with you to address all phases of the infrastructure development life cycle, providing measurable value to the organisation and its shareholders.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been widespread in the engineering and construction industry given the interconnectedness and global nature of the construction industry’s supply chains and workforce. PwC has worked with multiple clients in realigning their project planning and resource mobilisation within the constraints for optimum project delivery. A ‘Capital Projects Recovery Strategy’ has been developed with solutions designed to jumpstart the key performance parameters.

Client issues

  • Ineffective safeguards in contracts and a lack of documentation resulting in unnecessary claims and adversely impacting profitability.
  • Unavailability of real time information and timely interventions due to inadequate digital processes and a technology platform.
