Seminar Programme


08.00 Registration Opens- 08.55 Chairman’s Introduction

09:00 Uretek
Uretek is the sole specialist contractor for its unique geopolymer injection techniques and has led the world in offering the most advanced and accurate systems for concrete slab lifting and stabilisation and a non-disruptive alternative to conventional underpinning to solve foundation subsidence problems.

09:25 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.

9:50 Profile Products
Profile Products is the world’s largest manufacturer and supplier of hydraulically applied erosion control and vegetation establishment products. Profile is a founding partner of IECA (International Erosion Control Association). We offer environmentally sound, site-specific solutions including soil modification, erosion control and plant establishment.

10.55 Dywidag
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.

Richard Kennedy 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.

11:20 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.

11:45 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.

12.10 Refreshment Break

12:25 Geosynthetics Ltd
Geosynthetics Limited provides “inspired solutions for civil engineering” through its team of design and application engineers.
