A must for those in construction industry!
Sean Brady is a fantastic presenter and these podcasts are no exception - it is fascinating to see the interaction of legal and engineering issues in the area of engineering failures. Using case studies, Sean draws attention to both industry and human factors that play a role in engineering failures and disasters. Looking forward to the rest in this series, and highly recommend them to construction professionals and lawyers alike.
Great to hear about the realities of failures, too often the reasons are not shared limiting ability to learn from them. Very sobering to hear how simple some of these errors were.
Superb. A must for anyone in construction
These are excellent, informative podcasts. Sean is able to ensure a perfect mix between detail, clarity and technical understanding without over complicating the matter. Easy to understand and absorb relevant information from. Sean is an expert in his field which is clearly shown through these podcasts.
