Putting Infrastructure Front and Centre in Public Space

As the urban landscape changes, solutions to optimize municipal infrastructure are among the primary ways cities have to enhance their facilities. Infrastructure is key to maintaining a level of service in line with users’ expectations and adhering to the principles of sustainable development. 

Every day, influenced by densification, the requalification of the built environment and technological advances, elected officials, managers, specialists and contractors invest in solutions to meet the challenges related to sound municipal asset management. Whether it involves water, transportation, energy, telecommunications or other systems, the issues at hand are often complex and multifaceted and the available budgets to address them, limited. To achieve their goals, it is vital to adapt infrastructure to increasingly dense and urbanized environments by implementing asset management strategies. As a result, specialists can maximize the value of their infrastructure network by evaluating their condition and considering the associated risks over their entire life cycle: construction, operation, maintenance, rehabilitation and renewal. They will have the possibility of taking all of these assets into account to invest at a strategic time and adopt innovative solutions using high-performance techniques and materials. They will also ensure the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their efforts by maintaining an acceptable level of service over the short, medium and long term.
