Risk management in spotlight at Big 5 Heavy

DUBAI, March 12, 2018

A leading professional advisor will shed light on how managing complications is key to completing a mega build as well as risk management at The Big 5 Heavy, set to run at Dubai World Trade Centre from March 26 to 28.

“Mega projects are in fact defined by their level of complexity, not only by their value. They involve substantial ground work, large labour force, longer duration, design challenges etc. Many factors could impact the progress and profits of a development so stakeholders are always managing risk in order to reach that deadline,” explained Ramadurai Venket.  

The show will offer free talks on project management, mining and quarrying, as well as a Geotechnical and Foundations Summit, where visitors will gain CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points.

Senior quantity surveyor at C-Quest division of KEO International Consultants, and speaker on BIM (building information modelling) at The Big 5 Heavy, Nicky Dobreanu pointed out how BIM processes add a layer of unprecedented insight:

“Essentially, the use of BIM results in faster and more accurate delivery of projects. The large pools of data generated by BIM allow decision makers to enhance and better manage the design, construction, operation and maintenance factors of their built environment.”

Mining section head at Narjan Cement Company, Mohamed Saleh, reinforced that innovation in technology and regulation is a major growth driver at the core of our construction industry: “Applying new technology and easy-to-enforce regulation encourages industry development; also taking into account the growing GCC construction activity, mining specifically is set to open new international markets for export.”

As well as a separate workshop series by the American Concrete Institute (ACI), mining, cement, and concrete solutions will be covered further throughout a range of technical seminars at The Big 5 Heavy.

“Large developments will continue to make headlines in 2018 with Makkah’s Grand Mosque expansion ($21.3 billion) to be complete later this year, as well as Subiya Bridge in Kuwait – one of the longest causeways in the world at 36 km,” said event director for The Big 5 Heavy, Richard Pavitt.

“Aside from revealing what enables the GCC mega build culture, the Big 5 Heavy will offer a wealth of equipment from 300 exhibitors, representing 27 exhibiting countries. There will be a visually stunning outdoor demonstration area and ‘Grill & Chill’ spot where visitors can refresh and network,” he concluded.

The Big 5 Heavy is organised by dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, is free to attend, and  supported by Caltex (Lubricant Sponsor), the Deep Foundations Institute (Geotech Knowledge Partner), Total Foundations Solutions (Geotechnical Sponsor), Deewan (Concrete Equipment Sponsor), Hard Precast (Precast Sponsor), and Stevin Rock (Mining & Quarrying Sponsor). – TradeArabia News Service
