Network Pass

Over the last few months we have held a series of panels and virtual networking events for the brownfield community to help you share insights and connect with others through some challenging times in response to Covid-19. 

We've had very positive feedback and great contributions from industry figures such as Alex Ferguson, Managing Director, Delta-Simons, Steve Edgar, Managing Director, VertaseFLI and Ellen Williams, Senior Associate, Burges Salmon LLP just to name a few - however, we would now like to build upon these events and invite more voices to the table by making them a regular part of our calendar through our Brownfield Intelligence Network.

This new series of webinars, roundtables and networking sessions will make sure you are still able to hear about new projects and trends affecting the brownfield sector as well as give you the opportunity to speak ‘face-to-face’ with peers and other industry professionals - all from the comfort of your own home or office.

If you are an Environment Analyst corporate member then you can access our Brownfield Intelligence Network for free - if you are not currently a member then you can simply purchase a network pass for only £295 for your whole company which will give you access to all our webinars and networking opportunities for 12 months.

  • Panel Discussion: Improving the Quality of Contaminated Land Reports to Increase Confidence in Risk Assessment & Remediation Proposals
    There has been increasing concern recently around the quality of reports and information relating to the risk assessment and remediation of contaminated land, as well as the installation and verification of gas protection measures.  As a result it is felt that there is now a lack of confidence within the sector in these reports and their suitability when assessing, verifying and signing-off brownfield development projects. The issue of competency, and demonstrating competence or proving eligibility to sign-off  / approve permits or reports is also an important area for review and discussion.

    This session will look at the key areas of concern and the measures being proposed within the sector to address this, including reviewing the various industry accreditation schemes, their role and value in improving standards and restoring confidence, and how to improve buy-in to the schemes.

January

  • Developing Effective Risk Communication Strategies & Improving Community & Stakeholder Engagement
    Effectively engaging and communicating with stakeholders and communities is an important aspect of many large-scale, complex or disruptive remediation, regeneration and infrastructure development projects, as well as those that are more controversial. Understanding how those affected perceive the project and helping them to understand the objectives can significantly reduce the risk of delays and increased costs, as well as improve company reputation and community relations.
    This webinar will look at the importance of understanding stakeholders’ perceptions of risk and how to develop effective risk communication strategies for different stages of a project and different types of projects, as well as techniques for better engaging with different stakeholders and community groups.
