About the Program

MillaSA welcomes you to the Construction risk management programme 2022. Construction Risks have a significant impact on a construction project’s performance in terms of cost, time, and quality. As the size and complexity of the projects have increased, an ability to manage risks throughout the construction process has become a central element preventing unwanted penalties. “No construction project is risk free. Risk can be managed, minimised, shared, transferred, or accepted. It cannot be ignored” (Sir Michael Latham,1994). Year after year, Milla SA ensures that construction risk best practice is not ignored and in this fast paced ever evolving economic environment, it provides a forum in which this subject can be interrogated from all angles.

The Construction Risk Management Programme will present a unique information sharing environment that will address the various topical risk management elements faced in the entity’s home environment and will take a step further to address these challenges as experienced in a foreign market. Navigating risks such as financial, design, climate change, health and safety, economic uncertainty and political risks all present complex challenges within an entity’s home environment and successfully tackling these issues and legislation within a host country is not easy. This educational setting will hold great learning and networking opportunities for all construction professionals, regardless of whether they operate in their home environment or abroad.

This event will present practical advice from the experiences of leaders in the construction and engineering field. Organizations that operate their businesses in emerging markets need to get the in-depth knowledge required to give them an edge and obtain a good understanding of how to mitigate the various economic and political risks and other challenges experience by local and global firms within the Construction Industry.
