‘Designing for the future, now’ e-conference announced



Date published

11 August 2022



The Institution is pleased to announce a brand-new virtual conference to be held in Spring 2023.

The pace of change across the built environment is gathering speed. Structural engineers are required to be more agile and even more creative.

From the introduction of BSI Flex Standards, which encourages dynamic good practice to the rise of reuse and the move towards circular economy business models, it is evident that future is now. This conference will equip engineers with the knowledge they need to ensure their designs are resilient in the face of non-stationarity. 


The conference themes will include: 

  • Reducing whole life carbon through collaboration

  • Design impact of industralised construction

  • Standardisation and componentisation

  • Designing for disassembly and component replacement

  • Designing for demountability and adaptive reuse

  • Designing for durability

  • Achieving resilient design

  • Performance-based specification

  • Material sourcing

  • Generative design
