About the Conference

Civil Engineers innovate, create and renovate, keeping the constructed infrastructure facilities up and functioning at all times, responsible for flourishing civilizations throughout history. The situation is no different in modern times with them responsible for the efficient upkeep of the society. However, the mounting concerns towards environmental degradation due to developmental activities have led to the limelight falling on Sustainable Practices. Sustainability by definition is the method of using resource in a way that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged. The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) defines sustainability as a set of economic, environmental and social conditions in which all of society has the capacity and opportunity to maintain and improve its quality of life without degrading the quantity, quality or the availability of economic, environmental and social resources. Sustainable development is the application of these resources to enhance the safety, welfare, and quality of life for all of society. Practicing Civil Engineers, who are in control of all things from A to Z for a thriving human civilization, need to be responsible towards the economy, environment and society. This conference, SPICE2023 is co-organized by Larsen & Toubro (L&T), Builders Association of India (BAI), Mahindra Consulting Engineers (MACE), Construction Management Training Institute (CMTI) and Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) Roorkee. SPICE2023 aims to be a platform for all stakeholders concerned to present, discuss, cooperate, redefine and innovate sustainable solutions for the continuance of the human civilization to higher levels of sophistication and technological advancement while still being nurtured in the cradle of nature.
