Transforming Construction – Challenging the Status Quo, London

About this event

The construction industry is at a crossroads. Faced with the prospect of scarcer resources and need to dramatically decrease carbon emissions, it must adapt to operate more efficiently and sustainably.

To deliver transformation there need to be fundamental changes to procurement practices - as these underpin and drive all subsequent outcomes.

In this ICE and TRF Fellows lecture, key ideas to facilitate this transformation of the industry are discussed in relation to various stages of the construction process, specifically planning & procurement, design & analysis, construction, operation & management and end-of-life. For each, current practices are challenged and alternative concepts evaluated.

Speaker

Chairmen: Geoff French, President, Institution of Civil Engineers
