Lighthouse Club International is delighted to present a Two Day Construction Conference on the theme of “Constructing, Contracting, Consulting, Collaborating and Caring along the Belt and Road”. As well as providing opportunities for international investors in infrastructure, China’s initiative of “One Belt One Road” has provided China’s construction companies increased business opportunities in the developing countries along the “Belt and Road”. However, with those opportunities comes risk as China’s construction industry has to adapt to international contracts and methods of procurement and the need to procure resources both locally and internationally as well as from China. This in turn provides opportunities for international contractors and consultants to support and collaborate with China’s construction companies in meeting the challenges of “One Belt One Road”.
The theme of this conference will be to highlight the opportunities for and capabilities of international contractors, consultants and professional institutions to support and collaborate with China’s construction companies in meeting the challenges of “One Belt One Road” through their expertise in project management, in particular management of risk through: innovative designs and construction methods; selection of appropriate procurement options; effective time and cost planning, estimation and control; fit for purpose health and safety procedures; coordinated insurance coverage; and efficient and cost effective dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms.
In addition to the opportunity for those attending of sharing new ideas for the belt and road initiative, this conference will provide:
- unique networking and marketing opportunities for developers, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, consultants, lawyers, trade associations, professional institutions and individuals within and associated with the construction industry;
- an insight to the challenges faced by contractors and consultants in terms of competition, innovation and risk; and
- continuing professional development opportunities for individuals who need to further develop their capabilities in relation to various aspects of construction, including managing construction risk in respect of health and safety and commercial and financial matters, procurement methods, contracts and contract administration and avoiding and resolving disputes.
