BELFAST BENEFIT: ICE President Sir Alan Cockshaw was in Northern Ireland last month and visited some of the province's major construction projects, including Belfast's wastewater treatment works. Stage one of the works was commissioned in September 1996 and stages two and three are currently under construction. Cockshaw also visited a heritage centre built in the adjacent old sewage works. Harvey Bunker (left), of the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland Water Service, explained the operation of the treatment works.
Northern Ireland association last month experimented with video conferencing. A meeting on the future of Londonderry, at the town's North West Institute of Further & Higher Education, was beamed live to Queen's University Belfast.
