Infrastructure planning, financing, procurement, development, maintenance and operation is regarded as a significant area of growth in Africa with estimates of spending of around US$93billion per annum required by 2020 to close the infrastructure gap. Appropriate and efficient infrastructure is a critical enabler for economic growth, sustainability and peace in the continent.
The PwC Capital Projects and Infrastructure Africa team, operating seamlessly across multiple countries within Africa, provide advice and support to our clients on every stage of their capital and infrastructure projects, from inception to operation and maintenance, including strategy, planning, funding, procurement, project management, risk assurance, governance and optimisation.
Within our global staff base of 170,000 people, we have over 1,000 experienced professionals in our global CP&I practice. In Africa, we have around 50 dedicated specialists who come from engineering, project management or construction backgrounds. They understand implicitly the challenges that our clients face in developing infrastructure in Africa, because they used to do the job themselves before they joined us. We operate as a single advisory practice across 31 countries in Africa, which allows us to deploy any of our 8,000 staff anywhere on the continent, at very short notice, without barriers. In addition to our permanent staff complement, we have a dedicated database of nearly 100 local CP&I contractors, that allow us to deploy them for our clients in as little as 24 hours. Beyond this we have contractual arrangements in place with over 35 Strategic Alliance Partners, each of which we have selected and vetted to offer niche expertise in the markets where our CP&I clients operate.
Accelerating the delivery of infrastructure projects - within budget, agreed timeframe and quality expectations.
