Royal Engineers bridge building exercise
22, 23, 24, 25 May
Will the Royal Engineers set a new world record at Civils 2000 for the time taken to erect its revolutionary Automotive Bridge Launching Equipment? A new world record was set at the last show when the sappers put up the 20t, 32m mobile bridge in 20 minutes and 12 seconds. Can they do even better this time?
Watch them at 11am and 3pm Monday to Wednesday, and 11am and 2pm on Thursday.
Movement for Innovation annual conference
Rethinking construction - profiting from innovation
Results from the demonstration projects will be the big draw to this event. Actual performance measured against key performance indicators will show which innovations do work and which do not as construction rethinks the way it works. Breakout sessions allow you to build your own programme for the day and dip in and out of the plenary events being held alongside. There is real business advantage to be gained here.
Tel: (0207) 505 8564, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Price £175 for demonstration project members; £425 for everyone else.
