The Upper Kei Basin Study shows the kind of in-depth investigation that will be expected more and more from the modern engineer The scope of society's demands on the civil engineering profession is rapidly expanding. We can no longer expect to be congratulated by society for merely ensuring that the works we build are impressive and technically sound. In addition, society now correctly demands that before such works are undertaken, all relevant issues be taken into account. These issues may include socio-economic considerations, public perceptions, environmental issues, future economic development scenarios, the views of specific interest groups and other factors. One of the 1994 nominations for the Border Branch Award for Excellence in Civil Engineering, the Upper Kei Basin Study, put this concept into practice.
