Projects underway

Geospatial Information Systems for infrastructure asset management
This project will focus on the available GIS systems and their capability and how this can be integrated into existing asset management strategies.
 
Responding to the lessons learnt from flooding
The aim of this project is to provide guidance on how to implement the recommendations contained in the published reports and from other lessons learned.
 
NERC Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Programme (ERIIP)
The Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme is a five-year, £5m initiative, which will be driven by the needs of the business community and decision-makers.
 
Tunnel management advances since C671 – good practice guidance
This guide will enable asset owners to have a trusted practical guide that can support technical and commercial decision making, especially upon increasing tunnel asset stocks and aging underground infrastructure.
 
Thrust blocks on buried pressure pipelines
This project will review and update CIRIA's 1994 guide to the design of thrust blocks for buried pressure pipelines to reflect new materials - particularly polyethylene, practices and changes to standards and codes.
 
Siphons in dams and other water retaining structures
This project will produce best practice guidance on the design, installation, operation, management and testing of siphons in dams.
 
Construction Innovation Alliance
Formed in 2019, this community of practice of infrastructure clients and Tier 1 suppliers has been sharing knowledge, experiences and approaches through baselining surveys, discussion workshops and information papers.
 
Application of Eurocode 7 to the design of flood embankments
Eurocode 7 is the EU standard for the design of geotechnical structures. Its use in public sector works became mandatory in EU member states in 2010 and it has been implemented in varying ways by member states.
 
Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) for civil structures
CIRIA is developing guidance for civil infrastructure owners and operators, managers and maintainers. The guidance will present the plethora of NDE techniques available in the marketplace, detail their respective strengths and weaknesses and...
