Infrastructure and Projects Authority
Keith Waller is a Senior Adviser to Infrastructure and Projects Authority in HM Treasury. A Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Keith has been involved in nuclear, energy and infrastructure projects for 30 years, starting on the design of Sizewell B in the 1980s and leading a number of major projects in both the UK and overseas. From 2010, Keith was seconded as a Senior Adviser into the Office for Nuclear Development in DECC to support the development of the UK’s nuclear programme. Also in 2010, he began work with Infrastructure UK (the predecessor to the Infrastructure and Projects Authority) in HM Treasury before joining full time in 2011. This work led to the publication of the UK’s first National Infrastructure Plan and development of the Infrastructure Cost Review, a three year programme working across government and industry to reduce the costs of infrastructure delivery by 15% and change behaviours to support better outcomes. Keith has been involved in the development and publication of the UK’s infrastructure investment pipeline and all subsequent iterations of the government’s national infrastructure plans. Keith works across government and industry to improve the performance of infrastructure, building skills and delivery capability. This includes working with major clients in the UK and internationally on strategic infrastructure planning, establishing the right conditions for investment, project appraisal and initiatives to improve the front end of major, complex projects and programmes through the Project Initiation Routemap. He sits on the Infrastructure Client Group, the Infrastructure Working Group of the Green Construction Board and the Government Construction Board. He is a member of the Government’s Growth and Enterprise Board, the Digital Built Britain Steering Group and the Offshore Wind Programme Board and authored the recent National Infrastructure Plan for Skills.
