Integrating Trenchless Technologies with Traditional Open Cut Construction

Description:

This seminar is not intended to pit trenchless opportunities against open-cut construction but rather present how contracts that are open cut by nature can be enhanced or supplemented by inclusion of trenchless technology through knowledge and understanding. Today’s construction industry, especially on the municipal side, is seeing an increase in the number of contracts and tenders that include the provision for a component(s) of the work to be trenchless, but far too often this item lacks specifics and is far too generic to be meaningful.

The agenda will be beneficial for owners and engineers who put together the contracts and tenders, who require a comprehensive understanding of what trenchless work can be proposed, the design implications, the physical challenges, and the time and costs constraints. Open cut contractors and suppliers will gain knowledge of the various trenchless technologies, their capabilities and advantages, and also their limitations. Generic technology does not fit all applications! Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Road, Mississauga.
