Event - Managing the Environmental Impacts of UK Infrastructure Development

This event will take place on Tuesday June 21, 2016, 9:00 AM in Kensington Close Hotel, London, United Kingdom. This conference provides an ideal opportunity for environmental consultants to come together with their contractors and clients and share best practice examples of what can be achieved when environmental impacts are considered early in the design and development process. The event is produced jointly by Environment Analyst and Environment Onsite.

The UK is under increasing pressure to develop new infrastructure to support a growing population and withstand climate and resource challenges. As a result, the next few years will see, as detailed in the Government’s UK infrastructure pipeline, over £400 billion of investment into planned infrastructure renewal and development projects.

It is vital that potential environmental impacts associated with these are fully considered and integrated into the decision-making process to ensure planned projects are delivered as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible.

With a mix of expert presentations, project spotlights, panel Q&A, and interactive roundtable discussions, as well as ample networking opportunities,

This event covers the following key topics
  • Determining Future UK Infrastructure Requirements & The Resulting Environmental Implications
  • Defining The Vision Of A Northern Powerhouse & Outlining The Projects That Will Be Delivered As A Result Of Its Creation
