Community Infrastructure Partners announces official launch

A new company, Community Infrastructure Partners (CIP), recently announced its official launch and says it intends to challenge the status quo for how infrastructure is being addressed in the United States, offering a performance-based delivery model to implement infrastructure improvements “better, faster, and cheaper” than traditional means.

CIP enables communities to build beyond infrastructure and accelerate community resilience by partnering with local municipalities and utilities to plan, design, implement, and maintain infrastructure projects within a broader programmatic approach. These solutions simultaneously address environmental issues as well as social-economic goals such as minority business utilization, local workforce employment, and resident participation, the company says.

“The traditional approach of one-off project delivery has proven to be inefficient, ineffective, and underfunded in the face of increasing and intensifying climate events. Based on our unique experience in the industry, the best model is an inclusive, programmatic approach that identifies and remediates dozens, if not hundreds of dispersed projects across a geographic area,” explained Shawn Kerachsky, CEO of CIP. “To make our communities resilient, our programs maximize every single dollar invested to achieve not only a community’s infrastructure needs but also social, environmental, and financial community benefits.”

The CIP team brings a wealth of experience in ESG, climate resilience, financing, program structuring, stormwater management, operations and maintenance, and contractor development. CIP’s seasoned management team includes Shawn Kerachsky, CEO; Sean Agid, Chief Business Officer; Pete Littleton, Chief Operating Officer; Elizabeth Wheaton, Chief Sustainability and Resilience Officer; and Eric Jones, Senior Program Director.
