A talk to be given by Jamie Burgess of BDS Structural Engineers, Harrogate, talking about a “Grand Designs” project he was involved with a few years ago that featured specialist foundations and a Glu-Lam structure. He is going to share his experience from an Engineers perspective.
PLUS a presentation from Adrian Grant of Ecus Environmental Consultants who will be explaining the impact of land contamination and historic mining activity on development sites and how to deal with planning obligations for intrusive investigations and remediation. This is an ever growing problem affecting South Yorkshire development sites with concentrations of mining activity ranging from recent recorded to more historic unrecorded shallow workings. Often this is associated with land contamination and ground gas risks. Adrian heads Ecus’s Geo-Environmental Team in Sheffield and is a geologist specialising in ground engineering and has a wealth of experience in land contamination and the effects of below ground coal workings on development sites.
