Project Management | Special Topics | Capital Investment Projects

First, we need to define this sub-category of capital investment projects.

We use the term ‘capital investment project’ to refer to ‘major projects’ that typically involve a large capital investment (in the millions or even billions USA dollars). Further, projects under this sub-category typically involve the construction of a facility of some kind, oil refinery, industrial plant, major road, or a metro project. Some call these ‘construction projects’ but we prefer the use of the term ‘capital investment projects’ since when we say ‘construction project’ some might confuses this with the construction phase of a capital investment project.
