Event organised by ICE

23 November 2022

This event has now ended

You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


This event aims to boost the networking between members of the Institution of Civil Engineers, students and graduate members in the MENA region. Preserving the tradition of the Institution of Civil Engineers, which was founded by a group of young engineers at a London coffee shop in the year 1818 and adhering strictly to the UAE government’s Covid 19 rules and regulations, this talk is intended to be held virtually. Since the beginning of the pandemic, it was not possible to hold networking events and the concept of a virtual meeting enables members to come together to network, at their own space with a cup of coffee socializing with other engineers.

Topic: NEC - The Risk Register/ Early Warning Register and Risk Allocation and Management
By participating to this webinar, you will understand the basics of NEC contracts and some tips for making it work. This is one process in NEC that you need to get working well on your contract.

MS Teams Link will be forwarded to all the registered attendees on Wednesday morning prior to the event.

For any specific enquiries regarding ICE membership requirements and processes please contact our ICE Middle East Membership Officer Aurelia Khisaf at [email protected]
