Managing Director, Michael Nugent has recently attended the first of a series of meetings with UNESCO in Paris.
This is part of a collaboration, which involves The UN, UNESCO and other leading Worldwide Partners including Concorr.
The team, made up of specialists from around the world and under The Disaster Risk Reduction Unit will be, over coming years, looking at all aspects of the built environment in terms of natural and conflict disaster management of structures. This will include codes of practice, standards, workmanship quality, failure investigation and appraisal as well as remedial strategies.
The aim is to eventually establish worldwide guidelines whether a disaster has occurred in California or Tokyo.
Look for more updates on this exciting work.
