United by Design map out infrastructure projects across UK
INFRASTRUCTURE projects throughout the UK have been mapped out by a York design agency after it won a contract with a top company.
The accountancy firm KPMG, which is one of the UK’s “Big Four”, selected York’s United by Design to develop an interactive online resource that gives an overview of some of the infrastructure projects in the UK pipeline.
United by Design was asked to create a web platform to bring together infrastructure stakeholders such as sponsors, developers, investors, contractors and suppliers in the early stages of development, focusing on both government-led and privately developed initiatives.
United by Design’s Interactive Infrastructure for KPMG offers a map-based snapshot of the UK infrastructure pipeline.
Each project on the map is displayed as a pin, with information about the project appearing when the pin is clicked.
The map includes projects with an estimated minimum construction cost of £20 million, with data being sourced from publicly available information or with the permission of the project owner.
Owen Turner, owner and creative director at United by Design, who last month won Business Personality Of The Year at The Press Business Awards, said: “This is a really exciting development for our agency, and it has been a privilege to work with such a major player as KPMG. The success of Interactive Infrastructure has demonstrated that we can work with all types and sizes of business, from the smallest to the largest, and still deliver fantastic results.”
Richard Threlfall, KPMG’s UK head of infrastructure, building and construction, said: “In the past few years there have been many calls for better visibility of the infrastructure pipeline in this country. Interactive Infrastructure aims to raise awareness of future projects in the UK.
“It is notable that the majority of the projects are in the energy and transport sectors, confirming that these will be the hot sectors over the next few years.
“It is an indication of the range of investments we need to make if the UK is to remain competitive in the global economy.”
