The right approach to ground engineering is fundamental to the success of many projects.

These start at the ground up and if we do not get the ground engineering solutions correct, this can be detrimental to the success of the project considering cost, programme, safety and sustainability credentials. In this webinar learn how implementing digital tools, SMARTer thinking and innovative techniques optimises the solution and delivers success.

This webinar will look at different types of SMARTer ground engineering solutions across the following disciplines:

  • Drill and blast (Case Study Pyrotechnic Blasting)
  • Complex piling (Case Study M8 Sighthill Footbridge)
  • Material testing (Case Study Hinkley Point C Lab)
  • Grouting operations (Case Study HPC Head Unit Connections)
  • Ground investigation (Case Study River Thames Scheme)
  • Ground anchors (Case Study BAS Rothera)
  • Soil nails & catch fences (Case Study Bearsted Cutting)

In addition to the above, some broad commercial cost shall be discussed.
