ICE is looking for case studies of UK-based civil engineering projects that are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Keeping the public safe through the COVID-19 pandemic – civil engineering case studies needed

During this global health pandemic, the role of civil engineers in transforming lives is ever-more important.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemicis forcing entire societies to respond and change how they live, work and play. They can do this because of the infrastructure systems and networks that are already in place.

Ensuring those networks remain relevant and can support communities is a continuous process. Even during these times of required social distancing, civil engineers will be working to deliver projects - safely - to make the world a better place.

We want to share those stories. We are looking for UK-based examples of projects that civil engineers and the built environment sector are undertaking to mitigate Covid-19 and its impacts, or to ensure the public remains safe. Examples could include work (across any stage) on hospitals, digital infrastructure connections, or the ongoing repair of flood defences.

To contribute, please email: [email protected] with an overview of your project or programme. This should include information on why the work is essential in the fight against Covid-19 or to ensure the public remains safe. Submissions will be collated and may be featured on the ICE website.
