Infrastructure is an indivisible part of our modern life experience. Infrastructure projects are the cornerstone of states’ economic growth, development and wellbeing. Nevertheless, it is often unclear what is considered under the term “infrastructure” when thought through. Few scientists explored the term more closely, giving their insights in possible classification of infrastructure projects, most of them adopting division on economic (physical) and social infrastructure. By conducting desk research and focus group research, authors explored new possible approach to infrastructure classification, combining the existing knowledge and three perspectives of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental. The main contribution of this work lies in proposal of sustainable-oriented infrastructure classification. The results of this study may be found useful by researchers, project management practitioners, policymakers and wider interested public in broadening comprehension horizon on infrastructure in general.
