Update: The Building People to Present on Infrastructure Management at AACE Symposium at The Woodlands, TX

AACE R 5Come join The Building People’s Charles Dilley as he presents insights from RICS Infrastructure Management: Current Practices and Future Trends during the AACE Symposium at The Woodlands, TX.


Date/Time: November 3rd, 11:10AM

RICS IM - CPFTInfrastructure Management: Current Practices and Future Trends – Stakeholders in North American infrastructure must take decisive actions to reform the policies and practices that helped to create its decline over the past quarter century. The infrastructure boom that followed World War II helped to ignite the economy for over a quarter century, but efforts to maintain and enhance these structures and systems have weakened. Public infrastructure investments and innovation have not kept pace with major advances in architecture, engineering science, communications, and urbanization.

Infrastructure Management: Current Practices and Future Trends, is a call to action that delivers insights from industry leaders on the current environment, while offering guidance on how to influence and restore this central pillar of economic growth. Many infrastructure leaders embrace these challenges and are working with policy makers to identify the path to restore, innovate, and deliver 21st century infrastructure across North America, but require more support from industry professionals across the various infrastructure sectors and disciplines. For this reason, now is the time to advance innovative ideas, best practices, and standards that will strengthen the industry and help society prepare for the future.

headshotcdBio: Charles Dilley is a real property asset management consultant, researcher, and writer with fifteen years of experience specializing in statistical analysis, asset management, enterprise application integration, and key performance measures for private and public sector clients such as Kaiser Permanente, CenturyLink, Department of Defense (DoD), Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) among others.
