Graduates and students seminar on Application of Reinforced Fill Technique, Hong Kong

About this event

Reinforced fill technique has changed the way that retaining structures and slopes are constructed by providing economically attractive alternatives to conventional methods.

ICE HKA G&S is honoured to have Mr Anthony Lam, Chief Geotechnical Engineer of Geotechnical Engineering Office, Civil Engineering and Development Department, to present an overall perspective on the application of the reinforced fill technique in Hong Kong. This includes areas of application, technical advantages and mechanism of reinforced fill, design considerations, construction control and sustainable development.

This seminar also addresses the certification system adopted by the Geotechnical Engineering Office to regulate polymeric (geo-synthetic) reinforcing products used in reinforced fill, in order to ensure the safety of structures and slopes constructed using these materials.

  • Capacity: 100
  • Registration will be confirmed on first-come-first-served basis and priority will be given to ICE graduate and student members.
