A look at the DCO process.
A look at the DCO process.

About this event

This is a legalistic process, but also one that relies heavily on the input of civil engineers. Engineers create statutorily required documentation, inform the compulsory acquisition and environmental choices that are made to help facilitate the project, and undertake the work to envisage detailed methodologies at a preliminary design stage.

This talk will explain the complex DCO process, focussing on the role of engineers, so that you can understand the framework in which your work will make a difference to clients as they move through it.

This talk will contribute to ICE Development Objectives/Attributes focused on project management and engineering.
