Panel for Historical Engineering Works

The panel identifies historical engineering works that are worthy of recording, promoting, and in some cases, preserving for posterity.

The panel helps to organise groups of civil engineers in the regions who are interested in the history of their profession, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, regional guides and leaflets on the subject. The Panel also work with the regions to commemorate structures and engineers by putting up plaques to bring these to public attention.
