In 2019 the IABSE British Group held the annual Henderson Colloquium, where twenty invited delegates explored what characterises structural ‘goodness’ in the future, and how future changes in technology and society will help or hinder the profession’s ability to create it? Whilst the question was deliberately ‘open’ several distinct themes emerged.
How should we respond to the climate emergency?
How to balance the disruption and opportunity of digital design?
How do we attract the future skills needed by the profession?
How do we ‘tell our story’?
Four of the delegates are sharing their presentations to explore these questions and challenge thinking around the purpose and future of engineering. This attempting to go some way towards identifying how and if engineering can be an unending stream of goodness.
Martin is a leading UK architect specialising in design of bridges and transport infrastructure. He is a Fellow of the RIBA, IABSE and the Institution of Civil Engineers and an Honorary Fellow of IStructE.
Tim is an expert in design for digital fabrication and advocates minimal interference structural engineering. He is a partner in Price & Myers and Associate Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture.
Nick is the founding director of Imagine Engineering, director of GIRI Training and Consultancy, and also teaches at the University of Sheffield. He focuses on the interplay between technical engineering and human behaviours, helping industry and academia to respond to the climate crisis and the great acceleration.
Margaret has been a Director at Integral for nearly 20 years and is a Conservation Accredited Engineer. Her work on old and listed buildings has led her to being a passionate advocate of re-use as one of the primary means to tackle climate change.
John Roberts is Chief Engineer at McGee and consultant with Priestland Consulting and CSDI. Over 35 years John has led and influenced at Laing O’Rourke, Atkins, and Arup, taking consultant and contractor teams through all project stages from conception to construction.
Nathalie is an engineer striving to utilise her skills for the good of society. She has 5 years’ experience, 4 years with AECOM then moving to Project Centre in 2020. At Project Centre she assists local authorities with their asset management. This includes inspection programmes, investigations and remedial works.
