Much anticipated and long-delayed, the UK’s National Infrastructure Strategy is finally set to be unveiled and is likely to bring huge opportunity for the civil engineering profession to shine.
Watch our 'What makes good design' strategy session again below.
Strategy Session: What makes good design? 8th September 2020 from ICE Group on Vimeo.
To fully understand the extent to which ICE members are equipped to deliver this step change in quality design, members have now been invited to take part in a survey 'What makes good design. It seeks to understand the extent to which civil engineers consider the design principles in their everyday work and the findings will be used to inform the Institution's forward knowledge programmes.
With net-zero as one of the four design principles, the survey findings will clearly help inform the second, interlinked project: The Carbon Project.
The Carbon Project is a collaborative effort, led by the ICE, to deliver rapid progress towards net zero carbon across all infrastructure systems, programmes and projects. It is focused on specific areas of technical practice where the civil engineering community has the greatest, direct potential to support carbon reduction, and is initially focused on three areas: (1) meaningful measurement, (2) building new capabilities and (3) transforming existing system-level emissions.
The survey is one of two key pieces of live research that will contribute hugely powerful insight from which the Carbon Project (and the broader NIC collaboration) can start to build.
The second is equally powerful and will be revealed next month in this year’s Unwin lecture. Here, ICE has commissioned research, led by Dr Jannik Giesekam, to update the emissions dataset behind the original 2012 Infrastructure Carbon Review with data from 2010 to 2018. Updating the dataset will provide an assessment of progress to date and highlight the remaining challenges in delivering net-zero.
Neither pieces of work will solve any problems directly: only civil engineers themselves can do that. But they will offer insight so that programmes can be developed and provide a baseline from which future progress can be measured. It is a hugely important and exciting start as the profession prepares to deliver that all-important infrastructure strategy.
Members should check their inboxes for an invite to complete the survey.
