Clive Winkler represented ICW at the Annual Conference of the European Construction Institute (ECI), which was held earlier this year in Milan in conjunction with the Italian Association of Industrial Plant Engineering (ANIMP).
ECI is a pan-European organisation with member companies throughout the supply chain in construction and engineering construction mainly from the Energy, Oil and Gas and Process Engineering sector. Its aim is to improve project delivery and performance by developing and sharing enhanced practice with heavy emphasis on collaboration.
Presentations covered a wide range of technical and managerial topics most of which highlighted the importance of combined teams and collaboration. A particularly fascinating presentation from a member company showed the uniquely innovative technique they had developed to re-float the Costa Concordia.
Future opportunities for ICW were created as a result of the interest shown in our stand and the progress of BS11000 towards the full ISO.
