ice news

Great George Street witnessed an historic first when the Vernon Harcourt lecture was recorded to be posted onto the ICE website last week.

The ICE plans to tape all major events held at headquarters to allow members across the country to watch the lectures.

Visitors to the website will be able to watch the Powerpoint presentation while listening to an audio recording of the lecture.

Halcrow director professor Chris Fleming was first lecturer to be filmed for the website.

Named after the late 19th century marine engineer, the Vernon Harcourt lecture is one of the most prestigious on the ICE's calendar. Traditionally held every two years, the lecture is given on any subject relating to river, coastal or marine engineering.
