The one-day event will focus on geotechnical failures and lessons learnt for the next generation, with case studies including Carsington Dam, Heathrow Express Tunnel and Hatfield railway slip to illustrate the implications of failures. Presentations throughout the day will highlight the ownership of geotechnical risk, liability, dispute resolve and forensic geotechnics.
Technical experts from ESG will be exhibiting on stand 3 to provide advice regarding ground investigation, geotechnical and environmental consultancy and foundation engineering.
