HKA recently launched its CRUX Insight 2020, the product of investigations into more than 1,100 projects across 88 countries. The report reveals the astonishing cost and most common causes of disputes and delays in the global engineering and construction industry.

With the COVID-19 pandemic showing little sign of easing, the prospect of further costly project disruption looms large in 2021; the consequences for an already severely stressed global economy could be far reaching.

Join HKA and the RICS WBEF to hear a summary of the key findings of the report, and discuss viable routes forward for an industry in the next year and beyond.

Panellists:

  • Stephen Blakey FRICS, Commercial Projects Director,  Network Rail
  • Lisa Molloy, Commercial Director, Southbay Civil Engineering
  • Martin Burns, Head of Alternative Dispute Resolution Research and
    Development at RICS
  • John Jones FRICS, Partner, HKA
  • Helen Stuart, Senior Associate, Trowers & Hamlins
  • Dr Alex Opoku MRICS, Associate Professor in Project Management & Quantity Surveying, UCL Bartlett School of Construction & Project Management
