How Tim is building a better working world

“In my work on major infrastructure projects I am continually focusing on how the governments and public sector can collaborate to bring more efficient strategies to help bridge the vast infrastructure deficits faced by many governments.

Governments are dealing with the challenges of the changing urban community, such as urban mobility, congestion, housing affordability and the changing workplace. I love helping find and create the tools that governments can use to try to get modal shifts in the choices of transportation that make urbanization work better for everyone.”
