Richard Vann, British Demolition Awards judge

We’re delighted to announce that Richard Vann, RVA Group’s managing director, will join the 44-strong speaker line-up for this year’s Global EPC Project Management Forum. Richard’s extensive expertise in the decommissioning space, coupled with his unwavering commitment to quality assurance and safety, makes him a notable addition to the event programme.

Taking place on 27-30 November, the 11th annual four-day expo will welcome delegates from the engineering, procurement and construction industries to the Leonardo Royal Hotel in Amsterdam, the charismatic heart of the Netherlands.

As well as offering a deep understanding of the challenges faced in managing EPC contracts, the speakers will reference practical case studies and provide strategic project management and leadership training throughout the forum. A more holistic view of the EPC project lifecycle — from proposals and FEED to execution and delivery — will place professionals in excellent stead to deliver more streamlined, secure, and successful works.

Richard’s exploration into how to prepare for and procure a secure decommissioning project is scheduled for the final day of the conference, 30 November, at 10:30am. Within this session, he’ll cover a number of insightful topics, including:

  • Plant shutdown and decommissioning activities
  • The definition of ‘known condition’ and the critical question of ‘how clean is clean?’
  • Comprehensive surveys and data gathering techniques
  • Compiling bid packages and the meticulous tender process
  • The crucial process of selecting the right contractor for such projects

In a landscape where EPC projects are increasingly complex and executed on a grand scale, Richard’s wealth of practical knowledge will prove to be an invaluable addition to the agenda. His expertise also aligns with the event’s focus on bridging a gap between the engineering and contract realms in asset-intensive projects.

Join us at this year’s Global EPC Project Management Forum to gain exclusive access to Richard’s insights, as well as the strategic guidance of other leading lights in the industry. These engaging discussions will not only enhance your understanding of secure decommissioning, but also offer solutions for aligning expectations between all parties involved in capital projects.
