Welcome to the latest edition of our digital magazine. 

It’s been an incredibly busy start to the year, and there’s lots of important work coming up on the horizon.

The Association for Consultancy and Engineering has called for green growth and major infrastructure delivery to be essential elements of the Spring Budget on 15 March. 

Both are pivotal to the UK’s prospects of social and economic recovery in the years ahead, and I’m sure the industry will be keeping a very close eye on the budget in March. 

Net zero and the future skills shortage were also key themes raised by leading industry figures at one of our roundtables earlier this year.

We also look forward to the first ever Decarbonising Transport Week, which has a series of online events and activity during 6-10 March.

We also have exclusive features on the importance of not letting inflation delay urgently needed improvements to our water and waste infrastructure; the lessons nature can provide to our cities on resilience and wellbeing; and the progress being made in aviation towards jet zero.

And our front cover is unashamedly dedicated to the Consultancy and Engineering Awards, which proved to be an inspirational night for an inspirational industry.

Thanks for reading, we hope you enjoy the magazine, and please feel free to visit us online at - where you can sign up for our free twice-weekly enewsletter, packed with a mix of news, features and industry opinion.
