Innovation in access to structures, Maidstone

About this event

This 1-hour presentation covers a wealth of innovation in access to structures including:

  • Pontoon access to bridge soffits from rivers
  • Industrial roped access techniques
  • Specialist netting access for jetties and soffits
  • Confined spaces
  • Commercial dive teams
  • Drone access

This will be an interesting presentation to show innovation in reaching parts of any structure cost effectively. The speaker, Daniel Nugent, is the Operations Director at The Concrete & Corrosion Consultancy based in Canterbury, Kent. Daniel heads up the Bridge & Civil Structure division. He is responsible for the day to day running of all surveys and inspections in this department; liaising with Engineers, dive teams and technicians.

Daniel is qualified with IRATA, enabling him to carry out innovative inspections using rope access techniques and a qualified diver. He is among the first engineers in the UK to qualify under the new LANTRA Bridge Inspector Certification Scheme. He is an experienced presenter and a past winner of the South East QUEST Technician Scholarship (2012).

After the talk, have a go!

A taster session of rope access through leisure climbing. Attendees will have the opportunity for a 1.5-hour fully instructed climbing session at the venue:-

  • Bouldering
  • Abseiling
  • Roped Climbing

The climbing session will be instructed by two local civil engineers who are fully qualified climbing instructors, volunteering at the climbing centre in their spare time. It will be a great opportunity to get a feel for rope access, whilst networking with fellow civil engineers.

Pre-booking is essential as numbers will be restricted.
