Early this month, Andrew Woodward, Regional and Technical Director, continued his support of the RICS CPD initiatives through his presentation to RICS members in Dubai on “The Society of Construction Law (SCL) Delay & Disruption Protocol and its relevance in the region”.
Despite continuing concerns over Qatar’s energy sector declining revenues, massive infrastructure projects are still affording local companies multiple opportunities. During his presentation, in partnership with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Andrew highlighted aspects of the SCL Delay & Disruption Protocol, how it applies to construction project management and the hurdles that exist in effective construction project management.
The event formed part of the RICS series of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) events held throughout the year to assist industry professionals to raise their professional standards and enhance their industry knowledge. Following the event, the RICS have requested Andrew to provide the presentation to their members in Kuwait, Oman and Jordan.
After the event Andrew noted “At Quantum, we strongly believe in knowledge sharing and we are happy to extend our partnership with RICS throughout the Middle East. In particular – we enjoy the opportunity to discuss and debate this often contentious and misinterpreted issue.”
Quantum is acknowledged as one of the leading management consultants dedicated to serving the interests of the international construction and engineering industries. In addition to regular industry presentations, Quantum is also actively involved in the presentation of training courses and mentoring programmes.
