Impact Infrastructure was founded in April 2012 and has offices in Manhattan and Toronto’s Centre for Social Innovation. The company’s primary goal is to create a standardized suite of business case analysis tools to promote the development of more sustainable and resilient communities. The team of professionals at Impact Infrastructure have played leadership roles in infrastructure development and consulting, project development, delivery and financing, economics, and Sustainable Return on Investment analysis.

Impact Infrastructure’s AutoCASE software automates business case analysis for infrastructure projects. The cloud-based solution plugs into Engineering, Architecture, and Design software and uses design information to quantify the Financial, Economic, Social, and Environmental value of projects. This information can be used so that a diverse range of stakeholders can answer the most important question: “What’s in it for me?” AutoCASE’s benefits include reduced stakeholder pushback, quicker project approval, and the building of more sustainable and resilient communities.

We have a passion for increasing the sustainability and resiliency of infrastructure using environmental economics, cost-benefit, and risk analysis. The senior economist will work with our clients to implement and customize our AutoCASE software as well as other customized consulting engagements. AutoCASE values environmental and social costs, benefits, externalities, and risks associated with infrastructure and buildings. The economist will lead teams, supervise and mentor other staff, interns and consulting partners.

Some of the challenges our clients face include customizing AutoCASE for specific projects and geography, linking economic concepts, such as willingness to pay, with geographical information systems (GIS), and measuring the impacts of “Green Infrastructure” on human health, local air and water quality, property values, and other benefits. The consulting projects will update and improve our methodologies and database of environmental and social costs, benefits, and risks associated with infrastructure and buildings.

The economist will lead teams, supervise and mentor other staff, interns and consulting partners. The economist may also be involved in prototyping and testing models, writing documentation, and providing software support. The candidate would have at least a Master degree in Economics and at least five years of experience working as a consultant.
