The 40th Annual Paviors Lecture

10 February, 2015 @ 4:30 pm


The Best Engineering Becomes Invisible – Let’s Get Over It.

Some things have always been true about large engineering projects. When they are being planned, financed and designed, they are considered unwanted follies that nobody will use. When they are being built, everybody complains about the disruption and the length of time it takes. Once a project is finished, nobody wants it closed for maintenance and there are complaints that it is too crowded. As professional engineers, we should not sit back and grumble about this situation but overcome it by taking a lead in creating a more resilient and sustainable world? The lecture discusses the changes which are required to bring this desirable situation about.
