Competition: win risk management book

Uncertainty and ground conditions - A risk management approach This new book by Martin van Staveren of the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands is published this month. It covers managing ground risk to ensure projects remain protable, explains the importance of individual team awareness in successful risk management and includes real-life applications of the GeoQ risk management system.

The book explains how, with margins in the construction industry at historic lows and with the costs of failing to accurately predict ground conditions rising, the importance of proper management of ground-related risk is paramount.

It is aimed at civil engineering professionals dealing with ground conditions, such as construction managers, project planners, project designers, geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists. This book will also be of interest to students studying ground engineering and construction management topics.

GE has three copies to give away. For a chance to win one, email max. soudain@emap. com by 14 July telling us what your key success factor for effective ground risk management is and why.

Martin van Staveren will judge the best entries and GE will publish a top ten list of ground risk management success factors in a future issue.

Uncertainty and ground conditions - A risk management approach (ISBN: 0750669586) is published by Elsevier, £35.99. It can be ordered online at www. books. elsevier. com/construction
