About this event

Event fully booked

Please note: this event is now fully booked.


The construction industry is responsible for 11% of global carbon emissions. As civil engineers how can we change the direction of the industry, and the planet? Are we too late? What are others doing? What can you do?

This event will be a talk from Tim Chapman, an Arup engineering director with a passion for low carbon solutions in engineering. The lecture will cover what civil engineers are already doing and consider how important it is for the infrastructure industry to adapt.

It will be followed by a Q&A session hoping to share learning and experience of the industry.

Hosted by the ICE North West Graduates & Students and the IStructE Lancashire & Cheshire Young Members Group.

Refreshments will be available at 18.00 for a 18.30 start.


Tim Chapman

Tim leads Arup’s Infrastructure design group in London, comprising all the design skills for major economic infrastructure. He has been very active in the steps to make infrastructure low carbon and has been an industry leader in showing the way forward. He has advised several major asset owners about how their carbon can be measured and reduced. He was one of the authors of PAS2080, the world’s first standard for whole life management of infrastructure and of the requirements for the Civil Engineers Declare campaign, to which 91 UK organisations have committed.
