The Jubilee River story - Beware cost cutting


From The Royal Academy of Engineering - Engineering for Sustainable - Development: Guiding Principles

The RAE (Professors Dodds and Venables) have now referred to the Jubilee River in their ‘Engineering for Sustainable Development: Guiding Principles’ published in September 2005.

Principle 11 of 12 (page 32 of 52) states ‘Beware cost cutting that masquerades as value engineering’ and makes reference to the Jubilee River by saying ‘The wider implications of design changes made during construction may not always be easy to spot.’ 

There are also two pages on the Jubilee River project.
