IPFA’s transport and industry practice covers both freight and passenger transport, a variety of transport sub sectors including toll roads, light rail, heavy rail, ports, intermodal terminals and airports, and a range of industrial activities which support Australia’s economic transformation and competitiveness.
IPFA's team of transport and industry experts understands the unique needs of the sector - the interfaces between all levels of government and the private sector – and the pressures growing populations, increasing urbanisation, technology and environmental considerations are placing on our existing transport networks and industrial practices. We also understand the modern needs of infrastructure users at a time where citizens are demanding better, more targeted infrastructure services.
We have advised our clients on managing, negotiating and delivering the Government's most complex transport and industrial projects, approaches to market and Public Private Partnerships.
IPFA's critical infrastructure and utilities practice enables vital infrastructure services and also covers all links in the value chain for utilities, from extraction through to processing, storage, generation, transmission, distribution, export, consumption, waste and recycling.
IPFA's team of critical infrastructure and utilities experts appreciates the importance of our utilities 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 enable sustainable, resilient infrastructure for all Australians.
IPFA's cities and social infrastructure 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, employment 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 to proactively use infrastructure to drive development outcomes – delivering infrastructure as cities grow not after.
