Marine infrastructure effects – improving coastal biodiversity (CON246)
The UXO Forum
This project has been designed to bring real change to the industry through a series of events and other tools.
Advanced Numerical Modelling in Geotechnical Engineering
Undertaking mainstream geotechnical design with numerical methods is relatively new for the industry and senior engineers potentially unfamiliar with the methods are required to put in place structures and procedures to guide the outcome and ensure..
Grouted Anchors and soil nails - condition appraisal and remedial treatment RP1061
This project is to prepare needed guidance in the form of a report that will use case histories, published material and industry experiences to describe good practices and recommendations to assessing the condition and providing remediation to groute
Working with wildlife - an application
CIRIA and The Ecology Consultancy are working together to develop a mobile application based on the toolbox talks, species and habitat briefings, to help construction professionals use the guidance on construction sites.
Delivering successful integrated water management through the planning system
This project will produce guidance which supports the delivery of effective integrated water management (that include SuDS) for new development and regeneration projects. It will review and showcase good planning policies and the process that underpi
Culverts - design and operation including screens RP1075
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.
Asbestos from soil site management aid
This project will produce the first UK interactive aid/tool in smart phones or tablets for ground workers and other site workers dealing with asbestos contaminated materials on site.
Innovative site investigation hub
This project will keep contaminated land practitioners, regulators and other stakeholders up-to-date with latest development, understand the benefits and limitations, theory and practical, safe and cost effective application of these new approaches
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.
Lean in construction - implementation support
This project will provide further support to organisations considering the implementation of Lean by providing practical guidance on a number of additional aspects.
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.
Copy of Abandoned mine workings manual
This project will develop a new publication to replace SP32 Construction over abandoned mine workings, published by CIRIA in 1984.
Cast in situ concrete RP1078
This project will focus on defects associated with the procurement, design and construction of cast in-situ concrete.
Gates, valves and associated equipment in dams – selection, operation, evaluation and repair RP1071
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
P3089 - Innovative technologies in civil engineering
This workshop aims to bring together clients and their supply chains to discuss the application and experience of a number of digital technologies.
P2968 - Supporting environmental good practice on site through e-learning
CIRIA is proposing to develop a series of e-learning modules that build on the content of the fourth edition of the Environmental good practice on site guide (C741) and the existing accompanying one-day classroom training course (IEMA approved).
Expansion of environmental toolbox talks
CIRIA will liaise with CECA and Build UK to expand the suite of toolbox talks and provide up-to-date, comprehensive guidance and learning tools to the industry.
P3055 -Working with wildlife - supporting effective management on construction projects
This project will update CIRIA’s Working with wildlife: guidance for the construction industry (C691) by reflecting changes in regulation, legislation and development in practice since its publication in 2011
P3059 - Management of invasive species - update of CIRIA guidance
This project will update CIRIA’s previous guidance and will be complemented by a series of briefings describing individual invasive species and detailing the relevant techniques to manage them.
P3086 - Designing for health in construction
While regulations require health and safety hazards and risks to be prevented and strictly controlled, there are no specific legal requirements for workers’ physical and mental health.
P3066 - Effective management of environmental issues in facilities management
CIRIA is proposing to develop a one-day training course that helps delegates understand the key environmental issues to manage during facilities management activities and the good practice to be implemented on a day-to-day basis.
