Explanation:
I looked in my awful dickie and it gives imprang-pula for infrared! ;-)

Anyway, a solution would be to define the word and translate that.

INFRASTRUCTURE:
1. An underlying base or foundation especially for an organization or system. 2. The basic facilities, services, and installations needed for the functioning of a community or society, such as transportation and communications systems, water and power lines, and public institutions including schools, post offices, and prisons.

The first general definition, underlying base, would be suitable, no?

let's say:
Batayan o saligan, lalo na para sa isang samahan/kapisanan o sistema

'Tol, I was on the way to doing this, pero nagbaka-sakali... you know how the guys over there have a way of mishmashing things around, and how the Surian ng Wikang Pambansa keeps trying to be elegant. I'll tell you later about this awful kalbaryo but in the meanwhile I have to suffer until the deadline. Merece todo lo que pedí por el asunto, e intentaron incluso colarmelo en alemán!

neutral  Samuel Caezar Porcalla: ang pagkakaalam ko, ang salin ng "infrastructure" sa pilipino ay "imprastraktura". ito rin ang ginagamit na salita ni prof. domeng landicho. "saligan" and "batayan" denote fundamental or basis.
