Overview

In April 2022, ICE hosted Transforming Infrastructure Performance (TIP) Live which brought together leaders from across the sector to discuss how the industry needs to change to deliver the £650bn national infrastructure pipeline.

ICE is delighted to bring you the second conference of this series with the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), the Infrastructure Client Group (ICG) and Construction Leadership Council (CLC).

The TIP 2030 Roadmap sets out a series of interventions designed to bring about fundamental reform of infrastructure delivery over the next decade. But how does the long-term ambition of TIP sit with the immediate pressures associated with a challenging economic landscape including high inflation, rising fuel costs, rising wages, materials shortages and the capacity and skills crisis?

Hear from industry figures on the day, including Mark Thurston, chair of the ICG and chief executive of High Speed 2, as they:

  • Share their perspectives on implementing TIP against a challenging economic backdrop
  • Explore core elements of the TIP agenda through actions of ICG working groups
  • Encourage rapid industry action on TIP through the launch of a 2030 Network
