Spatial Planning & Infastructure - Prioritising Investment in National Infrastructure – A Long Term Perspective. Presented by Tim Brick - Oct. 23, 2015

This paper based on the work of the various Infrastructure Working Groups of the Academy and Tim’s own considerable experience of managing major infrastructural projects highlighted a number of issues:
  • The bad history internationally and in Ireland of major cost overruns and failure to achieve targets.
  • The underlying reasons for these sub-optimal outcomes.
  • The processes required to manage infrastructural projects efficiently.
  • The general priorities in terms of critical infrastructure in Ireland looking 20 years ahead.
