Join the ICE East Midlands Lincolnshire Branch for a technical overview of the refurbishment of the Keadby pumping station.

Phil Walker BSc CEng MICE, civil chief engineer at Binnies UK, will discuss the flood risk management strategy for the Isle of Axholme.

15,761 properties and critical infrastructure were at risk if the Keadby pumping station failed. Through collaboration and innovation, the project team realised £12m of savings through the re-use of existing assets.

Phil will discuss how this was achieved and managed and how the pumping station remained operational throughout the refurbishment.

Join this event to learn about the challenges and solutions as well as the environmental benefits that the refurbishment of the Keadby pumping station provided. This event is a great opportunity for those with an interest in flood resilience.
