Neil Humphrey, COO at Waterman and chair of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering’s (ACE) procurement and pipeline group:
“We welcome the update to the Government’s infrastructure and construction pipeline. Full transparency in this area is crucial to ensuring our members have the right mix of skills, expertise and experience to deliver ambitions to Build Back Better. As the delivery partner of choice for public sector clients, the pipeline’s publication also means we are poised and ready to play our part in enabling swifter delivery and meeting Project Speed’s aspirations."
“The volume and scope of the projects and programmes in the pipeline reveals some of the detail behind commitments for post-pandemic recovery and, longer-term, to a Net Zero future. I’m pleased that ACE was able to support its members to deploy capabilities to best-effect by ensuring that additional project details were provided this year. This was a simple but common-sense improvement which will ensure the document is even more useful for the industry.“
