What are greenfield and brownfield projects?

Greenfield projects involve constructing new facilities on undeveloped land, offering a clean slate for design and development. These projects typically face fewer constraints as there are no pre-existing structures or environmental issues to address, allowing for greater flexibility and innovation in design and construction.

Brownfield projects, on the other hand, involve redeveloping or expanding existing facilities. These projects must navigate the complexities of integrating new designs with existing infrastructure, which can include outdated systems, environmental contamination, and strict regulatory requirements. Brownfield projects often require more detailed planning and coordination to address these challenges and ensure successful integration.
