About this event

The Queensferry Crossing is currently under construction, and once complete will be the largest three-tower cable-stayed bridge in the world. 169,000 cubic metres of concrete and 34,500 tonnes of steel make up the 2.7km long structure, which will replace the Forth Road Bridge as the main transport route across the Firth of Forth in Scotland.

Stephen Knox will give an overview of the various construction techniques being used across the Works, and also give an insight into the day-to-day responsibilities of a Designer's Site Representative working on a project of this scale.

Speaker

Stephen Knox (Ramboll/Forth Crossing Design JV) is part of the Designer’s Site Representative (DSR) team which is based on site near Edinburgh and responsible for monitoring for construction compliance with design and providing construction support to the contracting joint venture, Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors.

This event is sponsored by Hays.
