Free professional advice
IWA’s Honorary Consultant Engineers assist IWA committees and any other organisations requiring engineering advice on waterway matters. This advice is provided free of charge but reasonable travel and subsistence expenses are expected to be reimbursed. Individual tasks usually involve a few hours effort with a maximum of a few days.
The main purpose of providing advice is to assist organisations to identify the scope of an issue to be examined and to obtain a suitable source of detailed engineering advice. In addition, the Honorary Consultant Engineers undertake limited investigations and design to support minor engineering works that are often carried out by voluntary bodies. Their time is likely to be used to best advantage if they are contacted as soon as proposals for engineering schemes are formulated.
