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.
Mr Lam is the Chief Geotechnical Engineer of the Geotechnical Projects Division of the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD). After receiving his BSc degree in civil engineering from The University of London in 1981, Anthony completed an MSc degree in Soil Mechanics at Imperial College, London.
Anthony joined the GEO in 1993 after working with Ove Arup & Partners in Hong Kong and Australia and Hollingsworth Dames & Moore and Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation in Australia. He has involved in project management and design of civil engineering projects in Hong Kong, China, Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
