About this event

Continuing the YRCE's theme of providing project lectures full of engineering best-practice, we are hosting a BAM Nuttall/Cass Hayward project team at 55 Broadway. Gareth will present on the Thorndell Viaduct project – a technically challenging project involving the replacement of a viaduct in a floodplain during possession hours - six spans and 58m in 76 hours.

This Network Rail project was required to bring the viaduct back to full strength with a 120-year design life to meet client requirements. In doing so, the project team were required to engage with local community, meet environmental needs using innovative techniques and maintain an excellent safety record – all of which were achieved. We are delighted to have Gareth here with us this evening to share his experiences and knowledge.

This project went on to win the following awards:

  • Excellence in Construction Award
  • South Branch Engineering Excellence Award
  • South East Engineering Excellence Award

Speaker: Gareth Davies.
