SOCIAL VALUE

Edge paired social value assessment with a whole of life analysis to model social outcomes on the Glenfield to Leppington Rail Link. As a government agency Transport for NSW was interested in the wider social benefits that may flow from project decisions. The Social Value of the project was assessed via modelling the potential of increasing the number of apprentices and increasing the local procurement. The value was expressed as a return on investment thus allowing comparison in dollar terms with other initiatives.
