What ‘on the ground’ infrastructure delivery can expect in the year ahead

Article | July 1, 2021

While an important milestone, the remainder of Phase 2B connecting Birmingham to Leeds awaits similar backing. Delivery programmes can often become constrained by timescales associated with land acquisition, procurement and site mobilisation at the start of a project. As this legislation makes its way through Parliament, continuous and prompt delivery of the integrated route must be supported. This will enable efficiencies and benefits to be realised during both delivery and operation phases of the complete HS2 route, as well as Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR). HS2 will provide 50% of the infrastructure for NPR; a project designed to transform the rail network in the north of England. Encouragingly, the Queen’s Speech recognised that improving existing processes can be equally conductive to positive transformation. The Planning Bill will modernise our current systems with simpler frameworks, enabling those on the ground to deliver environmental and commercial opportunities more promptly. This will also support delivery of the UK’s ambitious net zero target. While efficiencies are encouraging, the importance of public consultation, as many major infrastructure projects currently undertake from conception to completion, should not be forgotten.

How COVID-19 Is Affecting Construction Bidding & Jobsite Activity

Article | April 3, 2020

It’s been 12 23 days since the World Health Organization proclaimed the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. In the U.S., as of March 23 April 3, there have been approximately 38,500 245,000 cases and over 400 6,000 deaths due to the virus. The situation is really starting to worsen as we’re seeing more states, counties, and cities choose to close nonessential businesses or issue some sort of stay at home or shelter in place orders. These include states like California, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania.

So, you want to be a detection engineer?

Article | February 25, 2020

Detection engineers design and build security systems that constantly evolve to defend against current threats. Two common defenses include securing networks via configuration changes GPO, basic firewalls, etc. and deploying active prevention security suites advanced firewalls, antivirus, etc. Because security professionals recognize that no system can perfectly keep out attackers, the other option is to detect malicious behaviors – in network traffic and/or on a host – that bypassed the other security controls.

Why infrastructure policies need engineers' 'bigger picture' view

Article | July 6, 2021

One way or another, we all work on infrastructure; whether design, construction, operation or maintenance. We solve problems and make things work – often without the public realising the complexity of our task. We sit in the background and don’t make waves. We are good at the technical challenges, but how often do we take a step back and think about how our work or project fits into the ambitions of wider society? Who is commissioning it? Why are they commissioning it? What are the political drivers? What do they want the outcome to be? What has changed since we started work on it? This sort of questioning will help us deliver better projects, as we see the bigger picture, beyond our technical solutions. With so much of our infrastructure delivered through public bodies, it is important that civil engineers understand, and give professional advice to, the political process that drives infrastructure investment for our communities.
