Services installed in roadway Surface elements Roadway Underground elements Telephone Water supply Sewer Stormwater Clear space Electricity Every development you see above and below ground except for electricity and telephone lines is the work of the Civil Engineer...
For sufficient water at acceptable pressure to come out of a tap, there are many equations to understand….
To design a helical stair, there are many equations to understand…..
Civil engineering achievements of extraordinary proportion, brought relief and prosperity to millions Kariba Volta Aswan Lesotho
Engineers, Andrew Geddes Bain, and Thomas Bain developed the early roads and engineer George Pauling the railway network
The Institution is there essentially to assist every Civil Engineering professional to develop and make the most of his/her profession ….
è Carries out career guidance è Raises bursaries è Develops codes and guidelines è Runs courses è Offers extensive input to government è Provides mentors, mediators and arbitrators è Seeks funding, job and project opportunities è Provides reviewers & manages interviewing & registration for ECSA
Requires Codes and guidelines Most of these are developed by SAICE, including the SABS documents relating to sound Civil engineering practice
Continuing Professional development is needed to keep up with changing times - this has been recognised worldwide by all professions and SAICE performs this role
Registration u To register a graduate must: u Must have a minimum of 3 or 4 year studies u Gain experiential training under the guidance of a mentor for at least 3 years … usually 6-7 years u Attend courses relevant to his/her development u Write essays on professional practice topics developed by SAICE u Must submit a detailed experiential report which is scrutinized by experts in the field u Must attend a professional interview and be accepted SAICE does this for ECSA
Membership of Learned Societies Mandatory membership of SAICE as the learned society for Civil Engineering is imperative in the interests of professional competence and public welfare. UK MICE MIStructE MIEE MIME C Eng
Funding sources / responsibility for ECSA Dual role of ECSA Registration Public protection Dual role of ECSA Registration Public protection
Funding sources / responsibility for ECSA If government is to have such a statutory body to act on behalf of the public, then funding is needed from government to offer public protection. Deterrent for non registered operators Bigger watch dog? Fee control to ensure no short cuts?
COUNCIL FOR BUILT ENVIRONMENT Property Valuers 2332 Quantity Surveyors 2637 Architects Engineering Landscape Architects 78 Representativity
Two Council representatives and one voluntary representative on the CBE from the Engineering Council is totally inadequate!

Project and Construction Management If we are to register for PM specialization then we must register every specialist discipline Membership of voluntary socieites assists members keep up with appropriate technology
Project and Construction Management WISA IWM SARF IMIESA PMISA …..etc
Project and Construction Management Dual registration for Project and Construction Management for professional Civil Engineers experienced in this field is unnecessary duplication. If there is a problem then … prevention is better than cure Address it at University level of all development professionals
CBE Funding State funding for monitoring the Built Environment profession is essential. Bill says no funding from State - all R 1.5m carried by professionals Meeting 19 April says R15 per head, and State balance Yesterday different….
Fees State funding for safeguarding the public against unprofessional conduct is essential. For CBE Two or more Councils Will erode membership of voluntary societies and the very standards we are trying to improve
The Appeal Procedure Technical appeals must be handled by technical experts.
An Integrated Approach In terms of the statutory structures, all constituents of the Built Environment Professions should be administrated in one structure.
Profession - without a vision, man will perish. People Country Continent
‘...the African renaissance can only succeed if its aims and objectives are defined by the Africans themselves, if its programmes are designed by ourselves and if we take responsibility for the success or failure of our policies’ Our President, Thabo Mbeki in his book ‘Africa: The time has come.’
