The majority of large infrastructure projects are now consented through a process under the Planning Act 2008 known as the DCO process.
This is a legalistic process, but also one that relies heavily on the input of engineers. Engineers create statutorily required documentation, inform the compulsory acquisition and environmental choices that are made to help facilitate the project, and undertake the work to envisage detailed methodologies at a preliminary design stage.
Attend this talk to better understand the framework in which your work will make a difference to clients. Attending is also worth two hours CPD.
