BRITISH CIVIL engineers working in Russia have received a boost with the opening of the Moscow branch of the ICE.
The branch has been set the target of attracting 2000 members by the end of the year 2003 and, in keeping with the ICE's new all-inclusive approach, will welcome all grades from graduates and students to Fellows.
It is hoped that establishing a permanent presence in the country's capital will further cement relations with the Russian Society of Civil Engineers.
The branch will be run by Arup International associate director Alan Hart, with the help of ICE country representative Dr Mikhail Lachinov.
Hart has started by making contact with all civil engineering firms working in Russia, from both the UK and further afield.
