WASHINGTON, Oct. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A group of recognized leaders in the field of infrastructure improvement, planning, security, and safety have joined to form the Alliance for Innovation and Infrastructure or AII.
The non-profit group, to be chaired by noted infrastructure expert and former U.S. Department of Transportation executive Brigham A. McCown, will focus on creating solutions to America's infrastructure deficiencies. "Whether it's managing congestion, addressing aging infrastructure, or securing facilities, we must focus on creating practical real-world solutions for all of our nation's infrastructure challenges," McCown said.
Aside from advancing transportation policy, AII will also promote infrastructure best-practices in order to achieve higher industry standards in the areas of safety, technology, and streamlined performance. The organization will be dedicated to find solutions to the many challenges our national infrastructure systems currently face by working tirelessly to improve the systems' capabilities, capacities, and security procedures.
AII will also provide educational resources for infrastructure issues, providing greater awareness, influence, analysis, and assistance to formulate solutions to achieve enhanced improvements and advancements.
AII will address all forms of infrastructure improvement; from agriculture to telecom, energy to environmental sustainability, AII will work to craft solutions with public and private partners across the entire range of systems that hold our country – and world – together.
