The Civils 2002 keynote speeches provide an opportunity to hear from two of the biggest names in the industry speaking on subjects that are crucial to the future of the construction sector.
On Wednesday at 1pm, the speaker is Andrew Wolstenholme, the man responsible for constructing the new Terminal 5 at Heathrow.
As BAA's construction director, Wolstenholme has been closely involved in a revolution in the way his organisation works with its contractors, designers and suppliers. Now, after successfully implementing new procurement methods, cutting costs and improving quality on a wide range of smaller projects, BAA is putting the philosophy to its toughest test - construction of the £2.5bn Heathrow Terminal 5.
Wolstenholme will be speaking at 1pm on Wednesday 12 June in the debate theatre.
Thursday's keynote speaker is Charles Secrett, executive director of environmental campaign organisation Friends of the Earth.
He will argue that sustainability can only be delivered by dramatically improving efficiency, which will require a radical overhaul of UK attitudes to design, manufacturing and construction.
Secrett is keen to engage engineers in an informed debate about what types of projects should be built and how. He will be speaking at 1pm on Thursday 13 June in the debate theatre.
