Civil engineering at its very heart is all about preventing failure. Good practice calls for civil engineers to approach all key decisions and designs from the perspective of risk.
Civil engineers primarily manage health and safety related risks, which is required by the CDM (construction, design and management) Regulations 2015. However, risk management in a broader sense is such an essential practice that it is universally applicable and deeply embedded into every single industry and business and everyone’s life. Bringing an infrastructure project from paper into reality requires civil engineers to collaborate with numerous other practices such as architecture, finance, law, etc.
Each of these practices invariably manages risk from its own perspective, but there needs to be a shared understanding of the meaning of the differing words used to describe risk. Even within the civil engineering profession, individuals may sometimes attach different meanings to the same words.
As such, the purpose of this meeting is three-fold.
Si is a chartered civil engineer working as a consulting engineer. He is currently at Robert Bird Group and was previously at Mott MacDonald. Si has more than 10 years’ multi-disciplinary design experience on high-profile tunnelling projects in London including Thames Tideway, HS2, Crossrail and Crossrail 2, at various project development stages ranging from feasibility, outline design through to detailed design and construction.
Si became involved in risk management whilst studying his MSc programme ‘Mega Infrastructure Planning, Appraisal and Delivery’ at University College London. He has since become a member of the Risk Group which is jointly formed by professionals from both the Institution of Civil Engineers and Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Si has contributed to the group’s recent publications such as “Front-End Thinking”.
Recently Si has contributed to the ICE’s Risk Management group paper ‘Success by risk management: A risk glossary in the context of civil engineering projects’.
