Abstract

The design and construction of infrastructure involves a complex process where risk plays an important role. Project management in this type of projects constantly needs to deal with decisions that directly influence the risk of the project. Risk management is presented a tool to support the project management in this respect. The application is shown in a case study, the construction of a metrotunnel under the monumental station of the Dutch capital Amsterdam.
