About this event

During this CPDUK accredited presentation, Robert McGall MD of Ground Remediation and Soil Stabilisation specialists, Deep Soil Mixing Ltd will give a brief introduction to soil mixing including how Deep Soil Mixing Ltd helped in the construction of the Mersey Gateway Crossing in Cheshire.

Thanks to the installation of over 1,800 soil mixed panels, specially designed to stabilise the earth around the bridge structures, they were able to accelerate construction on the project and dramatically cut costs. The Mersey Gateway Crossing is just one example of how our techniques are improving things for engineers, developers and contractors.

He will also talk about other projects as well as some exciting new developments in soil mixing equipment brought to the UK for the first time, and how they can help engineers in complex land remediation projects.

Robert will also explore future developments in soil mixing equipment and there will also be a question and answer session at the end.
