Smart Infrastructure

State building infrastructure plays a key role in the economy with respect to the provision of employment, business cashflows and the higher living standards of communities. Smart infrastructure projects as those that prioritise eco-efficiency, resilience and productivity.

As the population in Queensland and Australia continues to expand, so too must the quality of our essential utilities such as water waste and energy. Present utility sources and structures have caused inefficiencies for businesses such as growing cost burdens (particularly energy costs), drought restrictions and general subjectivity to natural disasters.

Finally, communities will also require digital infrastructure allowing for seamless integration with the transitioning marketplace. Together, timely investments and well-managed planning will unlock the benefits of infrastructure investments, technological advancements, and growing populations.
