Succeeding in challenging times: an international approach to brownfield projects

Ciria’s much awaited annual contaminated land conference is back and this year, it is being held at the historical American centre, in the heart of the city of London on 14th October.
The construction sector in the UK and overseas has been hard hit by the current global economic crisis. However, major land regeneration projects around the world continue to develop, among many examples, projects associated with the 2012 Games in London and the Commonwealth Games in 2014 in Glasgow are progressing well.

The concern today is securing funds for socially important regeneration projects and being able to plan and deliver these projects effectively. Banks and financial nstitutions have changed their business risk exposure profiles and are not supporting projects as they have done in the past.

Fortunately new funding sources such as those provided by the newly established Homes and Communities Agency on affordable housing, have contributed to making a positive impact on the industry. Opportunities for British contaminated land professionals on overseas land regeneration projects provide continuity for organisations but there remains the need to understand prevailing funding streams.

The globally-focused conference brought to you by CIRIA will highlight the planning and delivery of some of the major land regeneration projects in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Far East. It aims to guide land regeneration professionals worldwide on how to secure funding, and provide them with methods to gain more efficiency and competitiveness in schemes across the UK and overseas.
