Vladimir Malakhov (NACEC Vice-President) and Oleg Yakovchenko (Head of the Committee for International Cooperation) will represent National Association of Construction Engineering Consultants (NACEC) at the Annual General Assembly Meeting (GAM) of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) and at the International Infrastructure Conference. This year the above events take place in Marrakesh (Morocco) on September 25-27.
The International Infrastructure Conference, which traditionally takes place before the FIDIC General Assembly Meeting (GAM), will be dedicated to “Engineering for the Challenges of Climate Change” this year. In particular, the specialized plenary sessions will be devoted to using innovative technology and management systems, to renewable energy solutions, and to implementing Building Information Modelling (BIM) in construction. A special focus will be given to the issues of developing infrastructure in Africa, to the water challenges, and to development of strategic approaches on mitigating the impact of climate change on the global economy. Besides, the Young Professionals Management Training Programme will take place during the Young Professionals Open Forum, and the traditional FIDIC Best Business Practice Forum.
Please be advised that one year ago at the General Assembly Meeting (GAM) in Dubai NACEC officially became a Member Association of FIDIC. It is the largest international organization of construction consulting services, uniting over 100 national associations, representing over 4000 companies, and hundreds of thousands of individual practitioners – engineering consultants.
