The South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE), with its strong tradition of developing, publishing and maintaining conditions of contract, will be releasing the third edition of the General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (the GCC 2015) to replace the GCC 2010 – on Friday, 18 September 2015.
Very few interventions or career days have the advantage of practically illustrating what a career is all about. The finals of the very successful annual AECOM-SAICE International Bridge Building Competition 2015, organised by the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE), provide learners with this opportunity.
SAICE recently carried out a general survey to assess the sentiment of engineering professionals wishing to explore careers in the public sector. This survey was carried out in association with the 3 largest engineering associations, namely, the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE), South African Institute of Mechanical Engineers (SAIMechE) and Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA)
The SAICE Presidential delegation led by SAICE President Malcolm Pautz and CEO Manglin Pillay embarked on the Johannesburg leg of the annual presidential visit on 20 August 2015.
SAICE in conjunction with AECOM hosted the International AQUALIBRIUM Schools Water Competition Finals on 31 July 2015 at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre, Johannesburg.
SAICE is excited to announce its recent partnership with the South African Road Federation (SARF) for CPD accredited courses. The parties recognise the importance of providing CPD courses in order to allow engineering practitioners to remain abreast of the latest developments in their respective engineering fields and providing them with the knowledge, expertise and skills needed in their careers.
During the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Water Week, this exciting competition also went international with both Swaziland and Zimbabwe participating!
The comedy pretty much writes itself. The Minister of Water and Sanitation thinks that the Washington Accord is an agreement between Cuba and the USA. The Free State MEC for Police, Roads and Transport agrees with the Minister.
Being a new parent is a rude awakening. Being a new parent for the second time around leaves one feeling like a stream in a Karoo drought. As new fathers, Jason, a mate of mine, and I high-tailed it one evening to a local hang-out den for rain
SAICE and its sister organisations have an adverse view of the first of a total of forty Cuban engineers that have arrived in the Free State. The decision undertaken by the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) to go ahead with the appointment of the Cuban specialists to implement their skills capacity drive, illustrate once again the DWS’ disregard for local industry body concerns.
