With Covid-19 and social distancing preventing live events this year, we have decided to take our event online!
This event follows the success of our first seminar last year, only this time it is taking place virtually!
A focus on modern projects
With a focus on modern day civil engineering challenges, the event will feature civil engineering and construction experts across a range of applications. Each day, part of the focus will also be on how the use of high density concrete and ballast has provided the optimum solution.
Five days of speakers
Taking place between Monday 14 and Friday 18 September, the free seminar will run from 11am – 1pm (approx.) each day.
Each day a different theme
Every session will follow a different civil engineering solution, with guest speakers from across the sector.
