On the 18th of February, Sir John Armitt, the President of the Institution of Civil Engineers UK came to speak at Engineers Ireland's Head Office.

According to the Institution of Civil Engineers, he is the “most successful British civil engineer alive” and was the previous chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and has worked on projects such as the Sizewell B nuclear power station and the high-speed Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

This is his interview with George Hook on Newstalk 106 about Engineers Ireland’s plan to revolutionise infrastructure in Ireland through a new infrastructure unit that would keep infrastructure development out of political cycles by setting action plans for future economic and societal development.
