09:00 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.
09:25 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.
09:50 Platipus Anchors
“Earth Anchoring Systems For Infrastructure Applications” will examine different problems with Infrastructure Assets and show how Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEAs) can be applied as an effective solution in surface erosion, slope stability, retaining walls, flood defence and drainage scenarios.
