With Covid-19 and social distancing preventing live events in 2020, we decided to take our event online!
Day four (Thursday) of the Civil Engineering Solutions for Infrastructure Seminar week focussed on Bridges & Tunnels.
Past and future projects in focus
Thursday’s session focussed on past and future bridge and tunnelling projects. With an opening address from Kate Cooksey, Senior Engineering Manager for Morgan Sindall and Current Chair of the British Tunnelling Society, the session featured guest speakers; Thorsten Braun, Senior Structural Engineer, Arup; Stephen Hand, Preconstruction Director – Civil Engineering, GRAHAM Group; and Shane Hopper, Senior Engineer – Tunnelling, Balfour Beatty.
About the seminar week
This event follows the success of our first seminar last year, only this time it is took place virtually in September 2020!
With a focus on modern day civil engineering challenges, the event featured civil engineering and construction experts across a range of applications. Each day, part of the focus was also be on how the use of high density concrete and ballast has provided the optimum solution.
Every session followed a different civil engineering solution, with guest speakers from across the sector. Each seminar ran for two hours and each day is available to watch on demand via the events tab.
