Groups / Major Projects



The most high-profile infrastructure projects are covered by this group, including Crossrail, the Thames Tideway and HS2.

Our Major Projects group explore the major issues which affect the planning and delivery of these mega-projects, from skills shortages to financing and funding issues via productivity. Where possible we engage stakeholders across the sector on a regular basis – including Network Rail, Transport for London, Highways England or major property builders.

The group informs ACE’s thought-leadership in this area producing innovative yet tangible proposals to improve productivity and project delivery, regularly responds to government consultations, holds events and writes articles for the trade press.

The group meets every quarter. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies: AECOM, Amey, Arup, Jacobs, Mott MacDonald, Ramboll UK, Scott Wilson Group and WYG.
