2nd Middle East & Africa Convention
Accelerating infrastructure delivery
Improving the quality of life

15 January 2010

CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTRE
CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRICA

Hosted by the ICE President,
Professor Paul Jowitt

Herbert Hoover, the 31st president of the United States (1929-1933) described engineering in his memoirs as “a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege”.

THE CONVENTION WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.....

ICE and SAICE members, development organisations, economists, financiers, industry leaders and engineers, quantity surveyors, architects, project managers, construction managers, contractors, and all built environment practitioners and professionals attended and participated in strong debate on the future of civil engineering and its contributions to greater societal needs.

Civil engineers are today faced with many challenges to deliver infrastructure in a manner that satisfies current societal expectations. Environmental, economic and social imperatives, as well as the ever increasing population in developing countries, necessitates that infrastructure be delivered differently to how it was delivered a mere decade ago.

This convention presents new thinking evolving internationally concerning the delivery of infrastructure.
