Project 13

A better approach to delivering high performing infrastructure

Organisations from all levels of the supply chain agree that the infrastructure sector’s current operating model is broken. Too often projects are delivered over budget, past deadline and below par.

ICE has launched Project 13 in order to change this. This is a new business model – based on an enterprise not on traditional transactional arrangements – that will boost certainty and productivity in delivery, improve whole life outcomes and support a more sustainable, innovative, highly skilled industry.

Project 13 links with government and industry

For Project 13 to succeed the whole system of infrastructure delivery must shift towards a framework that incentivises productivity.

We know that government places high performing infrastructure at the heart of its economic plans and is taking action through a range of initiatives in order to deliver this commitment.

By linking Project 13 closely with these initiatives (below) we are complementing and influencing their development – towards the ultimate outcome of improved productivity.
