The Consulting Engineering industry launches a new set of practical guides for use by all those involved in developing infrastructure. The launch took place on 16-18 September 2013 in Barcelona at the Centenary Conference of FIDIC.
FIDIC Centenary Awards Celebrated at FIDIC Gala Dinner in Barcelona on 16th September 2013. FIDIC was delighted to award Trophies of Excellence for projects and individuals having made a significant contribution over the last 100 years. In addition, a number of recipients received Awards of Merit from FIDIC President Geoff French and special guest Olivia Prangey, great grand-daughter of FIDIC´s first President Louis Prangey.
As the world continues to avoid hard questions on sustainable infrastructure, precious resources continue to be depleted, thereby compromising our Quality of Life. At the FIDIC Centenary Conference in Barcelona 16-18 September, keynote speakers urged the 1200 delegates from 96 countries to speak up about the poor investment decisions being made, either for political expediency or based on poor economic parameters.
Recognising the increased global demand for FIDIC products and services, the Executive Committee of FIDIC has agreed to additional investment in its regional programme. This will offer greater support to the industry through member associations, as well as to companies and clients. In addition to new contracts and business guides on procurement, materials are being developed for a more extensive training programme, currently covering some 40 countries. The draft business plan for 2014-16 will be launched at FIDIC’s general assembly meeting in Barcelona in September.
Watch FIDIC's 100 Years Video! It shows the origins and development of the Federation since 1913. It also highlights FIDIC's key role and that of its member associations to improve quality of life through the promotion of quality, integrity and sustainability in the infrastructure industry.
FIDIC has offered strong support for the planned reforms by the World Bank. With a new focus on Development Effectiveness, the Bank’s draft Framework recognises the importance of integrity, sustainability and capacity building as integral to the effective use of investment funds. Life cycle costing is likely to be adopted as core to project planning, with new roles envisaged for the consulting engineering industry. The debate can be followed through the Bank’s website.
