Fugro Seminars Examine Role of Site Characterisation in Project Risk Management

Parul Dubey on June 21, 2017 - in Events

A lack of timely, comprehensive site data is often cited as a factor in unplanned design changes, programme delays and budget over-runs affecting infrastructure delivery.


In two new one-day seminars, Fugro will show how an integrated, state-of-the-art ground investigation can reduce uncertainty and pre-construction risk when planning development at complex sites. Respected experts at Fugro, a global leader in site characterisation and asset integrity solutions, will discuss ways in which high quality information can improve performance in the key areas of safety, programme, environmental impact and cost.


With a focus on pre-construction ground investigation on land and at shallow marine sites, the seminar will highlight the progressive use of techniques such as geophysics, drilling and sampling, cone penetration testing (CPT), laboratory testing and monitoring. Deriving greater value from data is another keynote theme.


Delegates will learn about initiatives to develop new and efficient ways of delivering information using online portals offering instant shared access. Fugro will also demonstrate how the integration of multiple data streams can generate a robust ground model, drawing on best practice approaches developed for some of the largest and most challenging infrastructure projects.


The event offers invaluable insight for engineers, contractors and clients involved in the development of energy, transport (road, rail, ports, tunnels and bridges), buildings, and other critical infrastructure.


Those interested in attending should act quickly to secure remaining seats for the two forthcoming dates: July 11 in London (IET Savoy Place) and July 12 in Manchester (Old Trafford).
