Download WSP’S Response to NSW Smart Infrastructure Policy
A foundational element of the Smart Places Strategy, the policy will ensure that the government can plan, design, build and operate connected communities that are:
- Better placed to meet the demands of population growth
- Produce, analyse and securely share infrastructure data to improve livability, productivity and sustainability
- Getting the best return on the government’s infrastructure commitment.
It also covers cyber security, privacy, data and intelligence, application and hosting, connectivity and sensors.
To better explain the impact that this policy will have on the built environment, WSP has developed this response paper.
Henry Okraglik, Global Director – Digital, WSP believes that the policy heralds a new era in the way we look at infrastructure projects, especially the implementation of new technologies as part of an integrated solution within the overall project lifecycle.
He says, “It will help the industry view infrastructure projects as a piece in the wider puzzle. And, with a focus on utilising data, it will provide better outcomes during and post construction, including operational and lifecycle cost savings.”
With a team of digital experts across our multi-disciplinary firm, our response paper explores how we have already implemented innovative technologies such as the Online Community Portal, Melbourne Metro Tunnel Environmental Monitor and the Newcastle Smart City Intelligent Data Platform into infrastructure projects.
