Projects underway

Tower Crane stability guidance - update
The update of Tower Crane Stability guide (C654) aims to demonstrate the safe design of tower cranes in response to changes since the publication of the original guidance in 2006.
RP1075 - Culverts - design and operation including screens
Culverts are one of the most numerous flood management assets and are common across all infrastructure asset operating authorities including those responsible for flooding, drainage and transport.
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.
Engineered and natural slopes - protection and stabilisation systems
This project will improve industry awareness, understanding and application of protection and stabilisation systems for engineered and/or natural slopes. A key facet is the delivery of a series of interactive events to identify and prioritise future
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.
RP1071- Gates, valves and associated equipment in dams – selection, operation, evaluation and repair
The UK Reservoir Safety Advisory Group has identified the need for further research and guidance on the selection, operation, evaluation, repair, maintenance and replacement of gates and Valves, and CIRIA is co-ordinating the development of a proje
Deterioration and degradation modelling of infrastructure assets
CIRIA is undertaking scoping of a proposed project on deterioration and degradation modelling of infrastructure assets.
Groynes in coastal engineering
The document would extend and update CIRIA’s existing guide, particularly in terms of maintenance and materials.
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.
The use of unmanned aerial vehicles for infrastructure asset management
The guidance will enable clients and infrastructure managers and those providing asset management services to better understand how unmanned aerial vehicles technology can be used within their organisations to improve their asset management capabilit
