In response to a challenge set by Hugh Morrison (Verulam, September 2016), David Knight and Owen Mitchell of the Institution’s Young Members’ Panel peer into the future to imagine themselves as a ‘structural engineer’ at work in 2050.

It is a pleasure to have been invited to contribute this editorial. Can I wish you all a Happy New Year and encourage you to add a further resolution to your list for 2017 with the launch of the ‘Business Practice Notes’ (BPNs) in The Structural Engineer this month? This new series is being produced by the Business Practice and Regulatory Control Committee with the objectives of encouraging best practice and highlighting areas of unacceptable practice in the structural engineering profession.
