IES & RemSoc Event: Land Condition Early Careers Network – 22nd April 2021

IES & RemSoc Joint Event: Land Condition Early Careers Network

When: Thursday 22nd April 2021 from 14:30

Where: Virtual Meeting

Presented by: Sarah Poulton (Natural Resources Wales), Richard Williams (Newfields) and James Arnott (Texo DSI)

This network is a forum for land condition professionals in the early stages of their career (~first 10 years) designed to provide support, professional development and an opportunity for members to develop key skills.

For the second time, the IES and RemSoc have joined forces to bring you a unique online afternoon event for land condition Early Career Professionals. This event is tailored around the important role of accurate site assessment and production of the Conceptual Site Model (CSM), arguably one of the most important dynamic tools throughout the project lifecycle. It will also feature a guest presentation on the use of drones for visual and initial assessments of potential building projects.

The general concept of the CSM, which supports the identification and assessment of pollutant linkages, is often mentioned in presentations and training across the industry; as it should be – the CSM ultimately underpins remedial design and project execution. But beyond the generic considerations, what aspects really need to be continually explored and considered to develop a robust CSM, and how can the conceptual understanding differ between project parties i.e. Consultant and Contractor? What are the areas of risk and uncertainty that come with it?

These are important aspects to consider for effective and collaborative project delivery, and will be explored during this event through interactive breakout discussions and expert presentations.
