Vancouver Launch of Future of Infrastructure Group Report – Reducing Risk in Transit Projects

June 6 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

BCCR’s Annual General Meeting will be held on June 6th at the Terminal City Club. It will be followed by the Future of Infrastructure Group presentation, panel discussion, and informal networking.

The Reducing Risk in Transit Projects report by the Future of Infrastructure Group includes a series of recommendations based on experiences from projects across Canada using different processes and tools to understand and tackle risk at every stage to support better project outcomes.

The panel discussion will focus on how risk is tackled on major transit projects across Canada and beyond. Canada is investing record amounts into transit projects, with most major cities nationwide having at least one rail line in planning or construction. Transit projects are large and complex, with many uncertainties and unknowns and large networks of interrelated responsibilities, all relying on each other to be successful. This adds up to significant project risk. Unclear, unmanaged, or misallocated risk can add considerable costs and delay project completion.

Presenter: John Allen – Executive Director of the Future of Infrastructure Group.
