About this event

Director of Deep Soil Mixing Ltd, Colin Critchlow has over 50 years' experience in the construction and civil engineering industry. Colin and business partner Robert McGall established Deep Soil Mixing Ltd in 2012 and now have a successful company that has undertaken projects in the UK through to Africa.

Colin's presentation will highlight the technical issues of soil mixing and soil remediation and the necessary procedures required to ensure technical compliance with design codes and practices. He will also demonstrate the various procedures for on-site works and the type of plant required to do this and importantly show with key case studies how new soil mixing techniques can transform severely contaminated or poor quality land into commercially viable land that can be developed, saving project costs, time and reducing carbon footprint.

He will highlight how this has been done using case studies including how Deep Soil Mixing Ltd helped in the construction of the Merseygateway Crossing in Cheshire. Thanks to the installation of over 1,000 soil mixed panels, specially designed to stabilise the earth around bridge structures using the cutter soil mixer, Deep Soil Mixing Ltd were able to accelerate construction on the project and dramatically cut costs.
