Project level design principles

Guidance for project leaders on developing project specific design principles.

Published: Updated: Tagged: Design & Funding

Building on the National Infrastructure Commission’s design principles for national infrastructure – climate, people, places and value – this additional guidance sets out a structured process for applying tailored principles at every stage of the project life cycle for nationally significant infrastructure projects.

The document lists issues which project leaders might consider including under each of the four high level design principles, from climate resilience to how the scheme will work with local partners to unlock additional value beyond the site boundary.

The Commission committed to publishing this guidance in the Second National Infrastructure Assessment, to offer project leaders advice and case studies on how project level principles can be developed, reviewed and updated.
