Bridges visually represent their surroundings, creating unique, identifiable landscapes. Iconic structures generate regional growth and heighten interaction between the built and natural environments. But beyond landmark features, bridges must be functional, durable and cost-effective.

With major redevelopment projects including the Mersey Waterfront and Thames Gateway, not to mention the Games package of 37 bridges offering huge contract opportunities, the future promises to be immensely exciting.

Is your company equipped to capitalise on this massive profit potential? Are you up-to-speed with the latest developments in material specifications, delivery frameworks and cutting-edge construction techniques?

NCE’s 3rd annual Building Better Bridges conference will provide a comprehensive overview of bridge engineering’s full remit, with focused sessions to stimulate innovation and promote best practice.

Benefit from key insights into:

-Evolving tendering routes and contract relationships
-Advanced asset management strategies
-Integrating bridges into the sustainability agenda
-Effectively managing the transition to Eurocodes
-Designing for reduced maintenance, maximum durability and disassembly
-High profile case studies including the Upper Forth Crossing at Kincardine, the Poole Harbour Second Crossing and the East London Line Extension

This is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the delivery of bridge structures. Whatever your material or industry specialisation, Building Better Bridges is the ideal forum to meet with clients and benchmark success.
