Municipal Pipeline Construction Using Microtunnelling


This one day workshop will cover the phases of construction of stormwater, wastewater, forcemains, watermains, and utility pipelines, using the trenchless microtunnelling technique. Attendees will learn the state-of-the-art, increasingly popular pipeline construction method. This method only requires entrance and exit shafts to install the pipe on-line and on-grade, through a wide variety of ground conditions. Microtunnelling 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.

Industry experts from Canada and Europe will cover the history and development of the microtunnelling method with special focus on Ontario, and will provide an overview of microtunnelling equipment, drill fluids, mud recycling, laser control systems, shaft design, and jacking pipe. The speakers will also discuss geotechnical and design considerations for a successful project, project Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) considerations, and development of good project specifications. Local case studies will also be presented.

If you are involved in, or will be involved in a microtunnelling project you will not want to miss this unique workshop.

Here's what our attendees thought:

"Great variety of presenters! High calibre!"
"Presentations were clear and concise."
