This comprehensive resource provides thorough coverage of the tools and techniques used in planning, building, maintaining, and fixing civil infrastructure.Thoroughly updated throughout, Public Infratructure Asset Management, Second Edition presents the framework and elements of life cycle management of civil infrastructure assets in the context of current practice. The book explains how to achieve the optimal integrated, multi-disciplinary set of strategies (design, construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, and renovation) necessary to manage and sustain modern public physical infrastructure assets. These include: roads and bridges / airports / ports / public utilities / water and wastewater facilities / mass transit systems / hospitals / schools / parks and recreation facilities / sports complexes. The book has been thoroughly revised to reflect the impact of built infrastructure on the environment, social concerns, new technologies and scientific developments, and the impacts of natural and man-made disasters.Covers valuation of infrastructure assets, largely in response to Government Accounting Standards Requirements such as GASB34 in the United States, PSAB3150 in Canada, and similar standards in AustraliaAddresses the adverse environmental impacts of deteriorating air quality, GHG emissions, excessive noise, and available mitigation strategiesIncludes specific approaches to sustainability including green methodologies, resource conservation, re-use of materials, renewable energyFinancing models for publicly owned infrastructure and for public-private-partnerships (P3s)Addresses online infrastructure (data access, mobile apps, cloud computing) and how these infrastructure services are assessed and providedAdds new and/or updated methodologies on performance measures related to sustainability, security, level of service provisions, safety, institutional effectiveness, preservation of assets and investments, technologies for in-service monitoring, data analysis, prioritization, and decision support and knowledge management
