Infrastructure Asset Management for Sustainable Service Delivery

Sat Jan 27 2024 22:00:00 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)


Please join the Iranian Engineers of BC Association (IEBCA) in an informative in-person presentation from Global Earth Solutions (GES). The presentation is in English, and registration is required for attending the event.

The presentation, "Infrastructure Asset Management (IAM) for Sustainable Service Delivery," provides a comprehensive guide for local governments in British Columbia for managing infrastructure assets. Focusing on challenges like aging infrastructure and increasing service demands, IAM outlines a framework developed by Asset Management British Columbia. The approach integrates international best practices with local expertise, emphasizing sustainable service delivery and the balance of economic, social, and environmental considerations. It covers the entire asset lifecycle, from planning to disposal, and highlights the importance of community-focused decision-making, effective communication, and continuous improvement in asset management within functional teams. The presentation will end by reviewing a case study by way of an example that illustrates the effectiveness and value of IAM and its protocols.

The presentation will be preambled by Dr. Mahmoud, and there will be extensive input from Mr. Banizaman and Ms. Mazaheri.
