As the nation continues to grow and adapt to global pressures, Australia’s infrastructure projects will continue to improve the population’s standard of living and provide access to new growth opportunities in the Australian economy. Government and private sector clients will continue to require collaborative legal delivery partners to assist them to create long term value and high quality outcomes.

Piper Alderman’s extensive experience in the full project lifecycle means that we understand the complexities involved in delivering infrastructure projects in a broad range of asset classes across Australia including transport infrastructure (including railways, airports and roads); social infrastructure projects (including education, health and sporting facilities); electricity transmission and distribution assets and electricity generation and storage facilities; gas transmission pipelines, distribution networks and storage facilities; port infrastructure; and water and waste water systems.

Our multidisciplinary team provides service focussed advice from project inception through to asset divestment in project and asset financing and corporate structuring (including joint venture and consortium creation); property identification and acquisition; policy and regulatory advice (including safety, planning, environmental, native title and cultural heritage matters); contracting and procurement methodology (including collaborative contracting approaches (i.e. Alliance, EPCM, Delivery Partner) D&C, BOOM, BOOT and PPP/PFI models); ongoing delivery and dispute avoidance advice; operation and maintenance arrangements; and ultimately the refinancing or sale of projects and assets.
