About this event

The talk will give a contractor's perspective with regard to delivery of a highly technical structural refurbishment project to a crucial infrastructure asset. The presentation covers a number of techniques including the more traditional civil engineering aspects, combined with specialist solutions such as carbon fibre strengthening and concrete repairs.

His career path through the various levels of the industry provides him with a ground up insight into all aspects of a specialist civil engineering business.
