• Summary:- Responsible clients and designers commission an independent check of their designs, particularlywhen the scale or complexity of the project requires it. This presentation explores the culture ofindependent checking that exists in the UK, especially in connection with major bridges, andexamines the benefits to be gained from such an approach. The cost of adding confidence andreducing risk through such a check is very small compared to the enormous benefits gained,particularly on major projects.The author draws on his own experience as well as published information to illustrate theimportance of establishing such a culture of independent checking everywhere.
