URETEK CPD seminar, Gloucester

About this event

The presentation is regularly in demand by every major company and consultancy in the structural and civil engineering field, and is a sought-after topic for professional organisations including the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.

The CPD seminar can be delivered at your site, free of charge by our professional CPD trainers. The 45-minute seminar includes:

  • Principles of slab stabilisation and polymer ground engineering
  • Comparisons with alternative ground engineering strategies
  • Uretek methods of application
  • An overview of Uretek technologies
  • Suitability – appropriate ground conditions

Uretek is the world's leading geopolymer soil remediation company. They are the original inventors of the ground injection system which uses expansive resins to control and manage the soils underneath the built environment.

They have pioneered advances in ground remediation for over 35 years and have provided subsidence, settlement, water control and void filling solutions on 200,000 sites around the world. The business operates in UK & Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Americas.

The Uretek solutions can be applied to virtually any situation where subsidence and settlement occurs. Road and rail slab-track stabilisation are common areas where the advantages of the injected resin solution are clear; stabilisation through geopolymer takes as little as hours where the alternative would involve excavation and takes days or weeks.

Their systems are also applied heavily in the industrial property sector where major facilities require absolute control over ground levels and bearing capacity. Furthermore, the injection technique is now often considered as an early stage design solution for new construction.

The speaker will be David Hedley, an engineer for Uretek.
