09:50 – 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.

10:15 – Refreshment Break & Networking

10:30 – 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.

10:55 – Envirosoil
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.

11:20 – Dywidag Systems
DYWIDAG-SYSTEMS are specialist manufacturers and suppliers of geotechnical systems, including ground anchors, soil nails, mesh facings and mini piles. DSI lead the field in drilled geotechnical systems and have been associated with many large and complex projects globally: UK examples include Chelsea Barracks Ground Anchors, Watford Cutting Slope Stabilisation and Battersea Power Station Redevelopment and the A465, Heads of The Valleys Widening.

Dywidag will be speaking about the range of solutions and service available from DSI with particular focus on slope stabilisation systems including case histories that highlight the benefit of the combined service approach that DSI can offer.

11:45 – Refreshment Break & networking
