About this book

Working conditions created by the river and estuary environment pose a range of new and increased risks to the engineer. To complete the works successfully the engineer needs to manage these risks such that the works are constructed safely and to specification ensuring the project is undertaken on time and within budget and that any impact on the environment is acceptable.

Assisting in identifying and managing risks in works design and construction, this book offers guidance in risk assessment and management techniques, along with the identification of typical risk issues likely to be encountered in the river and estuary environment. It is essential reading for clients, project funders, contractors, consulting engineers (both in design and supervision roles), insurers and those interested with the risks associated with river and estuary engineering.
