Microtunneling for Pressure and Gravity Pipelines

Description:

Summary: This one-day workshop will focus on the construction of municipal pipelines using the Microtunnelling trenchless construction method. Over the past several years Ontario has grown from not using Microtunnelling to becoming a leader in North America for complex and challenging projects that include curved concrete pipelines. Microtunnelling construction benefits include: reduced risk during construction, large greenhouse gas emission savings, rapid out-of-sight and out-of-mind construction, significant reduction in social and environmental costs.

Attendees will learn from leading international and national industry experts on state-of-the art construction equipment, processes, design, construction risk mitigation and quality control and quality assurance. In addition, local case studies will be presented to demonstrate how successful on time and on budget projects can be constructed locally. This is a workshop you will not want to miss and is held only once a year. Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Road, Mississauga.
