Building Intelligent Infrastructure
Infrastructure systems that serve a city such as roads, bridges, water systems, sewage networks, electric grids, and telecommunications systems are vital to a city’s economic development and prosperity.
UWI’s cities provide sustainable, and resilient infrastructure systems of superior standards, that are installed upfront and in line with the city’s maximum capacities. This model allows accelerated development as developers are provided with land that is pre-connected to all infrastructure networks which supports business foundation, and accelerates development activities and economic growth of a city.
