The BGA plans to hold its 2021 Annual Conference, including the AGM, on 13th September 2021. It is currently planned to hold this as a face-to-face event at the Institution of Civil Engineers (subject to the prevailing Government guidelines at the time).
The event will follow the same format as in previous years with several speakers on current projects and ongoing research. It will also include presentations from younger members of our profession, the Cooling Prize winner, and the winner of the BGA Masters Prize.
Rachel Skinner, the President of the ICE, will start the event by giving an introduction to net Carbon Agenda followed by a speaker from Network Rail giving their perspective on this important issue.
Lessons learnt from the COVID pandemic in terms of Health and Safety will also be covered and there will be a number of project updates. The projects featured will be related to offshore wind power and the modelling of Climate Change, particularly the effect on earthworks. There will also be updates on the Hinkley Point C project and HS2. In addition, there will be a talk on research related to foundations for overhead electrified line equipment.
As in previous years the work of CIRIA and the AGS will be featured. An update on the BGA’s work to establish a “Technologists” community will be highlighted.
