Siltbuster Ltd
Siltbuster will be presenting on the latest changes to environmental legislation and how common construction site activities can cause pollution incidents. A selection of case studies will demonstrate best practice for the treatment of pollutants including: Silts, Oils, and Concrete Wash Water.

Concrete Canvas
New Technology – Concrete Canvas (CC) is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable, water proof and fire resistant concrete layer. Learn how this innovative material is being used as a rapid alternative to conventional concrete in ditch lining, slope protection, bund lining, gabion reinforcement, concrete remediation, culvert lining and more.

Platipus Anchors
Geotechnical Design using Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®)” Platipus will cover the prediction of load theory and testing and how it relates to conceptual proposals and indemnified designs. This will be presented through specific case studies encompassing erosion control, slope stabilisation, retaining walls, sheet piling and drainage applications.

Geosynthetics Ltd
Geosynthetics Limited provides “inspired solutions for civil engineering” through its team of design and application engineers.
Using extensive knowledge of product and applications the team are developing an enviable reputation for innovative and sustainable solutions that not only achieve the desired objectives but also save time and reduce costs.

Envirosoil (Remediation) Ltd specialises in Soil Stabilisation. We offer this technique as substitutes for the importation of primary or secondary aggregates and the export of waste to tip. This results in a saving at least equal to the disposal cost of the waste material. Other spin offs include a 70% reduction in the consumption of diesel in the execution of these activities, a 95% decrease in HGV movements onto and off site, and the elimination of waste to tip equal to the quantity of primary and secondary aggregate required on site.

140 years ago Maccaferri invented Gabions and dramatically changed civil engineering’s landscape. We are still changing it today. We work everyday to find better solutions for our clients. We make innovation happen around the world and we offer ongoing support to establish relations built on solid trust.
