Brevia Infrastructure provides straightforward political and communications support to facilitate major infrastructure and development projects. Our experience includes airports, housing developments, rail freight interchanges, road and rail schemes, and civil nuclear infrastructure. Brevia has also provided support to a number of chartered bodies covering engineering, building and project management. We have specialist expertise in supporting Development Consent Orders (DCOs).
Brevia works at the heart of multi-disciplinary teams to help navigate the planning process and the political environment faced by major infrastructure developments. Our support reduces reputational and political risk at all phases in the project cycle from planning through to build and operation.
Brevia’s deep understanding of the sector has enabled us to support clients on a wide range of projects. Our consultants have particular strength in working with clients to successfully secure Development Consent Orders (DCOs) for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP). The consultancy has also supported a range of chartered bodies in the sector including the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Association for Project Management (APM), and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
The infrastructure industry is of key strategic importance to the UK economy. Over £600 billion of public and private investment is projected over the next 10 years and nearly 700 projects, programmes and other investments are in the Government’s National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline.
Ofgem plans to grant National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) £637 million to build a transmission link connecting Hinkley Point C to the grid. This is £80 million short of the NGET’s initial request of £717 million.
The Prime Minister has surprised many commentators by persuading the European Union (EU) to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement and agree a new Brexit deal. Over this weekend he may well surprise them further by getting that deal through Parliament, which will allow the UK to leave the EU on 31 October 2019.
EDF Energy has announced that the anticipated cost of Hinkley Point C has increased by £2.9 billion. This is almost a 15 per cent increase relative to the previous estimate. Project completion is now estimated to be between £21.5 billion and £22.5 billion.
