IPFA’s transport sector of practice covers both freight and passenger transport, and a variety of transport sub sectors such as such as toll roads, light rail, heavy rail, ports, intermodal terminals and airports.
IPFA's team of transport sector experts understands the unique needs of the sector - the interfaces at all levels of government and with the private sector and the pressures growing populations are placing on our existing transport networks. We also understand the modern needs of the transport user - as we are at a time where citizen are demanding better, more targeted transport services and technology is changing the way we consume transport services.
We have advised our clients on managing, negotiating and delivering the Government's most complex transport projects, approaches to market and Public Private Partnerships.
IPFA's energy and water practice covers all links in the value chain in each sector, from extraction through to processing, storage, generation, transmission, distribution, export, consumption, waste and recycling.
IPFA's team of energy and water experts appreciates the importance of our water resources and changing nature of our energy markets – which are undergoing a transition as new technologies, such as renewable generation and storage technologies like batteries emerge, older generation exits the system, and supply and demand issues impact on system reliability and costs.
We have helped clients design and negotiate effective commercial structures in these transitioning markets, working on government’s highest profile projects to ensure a better energy future for Australians.
IPFA's city and social practice covers health, education, research, urban development and urban renewal projects.
IPFA's team of City and Social experts recognises that, in an environment of growing populations, liveable cities are critical to Australians' wellbeing, as well as providing increased business, job and education opportunities and driving economic growth.
We have advised on commercial arrangements to help shape cities and regenerate communities. We use our commercial acumen to better align infrastructure and land use planning decision making and drive better financial and social outcomes. We support the Australian Government as a more active partner in infrastructure to proactively use infrastructure to drive development outcomes – delivering infrastructure as cities grow not after.
