Microtunnelling for Municipal Construction, February 16

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

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 Rd, Mississauga, ON L4Z 3E8

Watermain Defect Coding, Condition Grading and Renovation, February 9,2017

The workshop will present a standardized defect coding, condition classification and grading system for water distribution pipelines. The condition coding and classification protocol is developed to identify, characterize, and report various types of anomalies, defects and construction features that can impact water pipelines’ structural and operational (hydraulic and water quality) performance. Furthermore, the workshop will discuss the failure modes and mechanisms for metallic (ductile iron, cast iron, steel), plastic (PE and PVC), and asbestos cement watermains. The workshop will conclude with the presentation on the selection of suitable renovation and replacement techniques that take into account the water main condition as well as other factors (financial, social, etc.).

How to Design and Construct Successful Microtunnelling Projects, February 2, 2016

Register Early! LIMITED SPACE!

This one day workshop will cover a phases of the construction of a stormwater, wastewater, forcemains, watermains, and utility pipelines using the trenchless microtunnelling construction method. Attendees will learn the state-of-the-art of this increasing popular pipeline construction method that 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 microtunnelling method with special focus on Ontario, provide an overview of microtunnelling equipment, drill fluids, mud recycling, laser control systems, shaft design, and jacking pipe.

2 days Watermain Rehabilitation Short Course : January 26-27

Limited space, register early!

Day 1 (Tuesday, January 26, 2016)

Day 2 (Wednesday, January 27, 2016)

Location: Centre for Health & Safety Innovation, 5110 Creekbank Road, Mississauga, Ontario, L4W 0A1

Water Utilities across North America have thousands of kilometer of water pipes that have exceeded their design and performance life. Evidence of this is the increasing number of annual watermain breaks and dirty water events that erode public confidence. Since digging up and replacing these critical water pipes is rarely economically feasible or socially acceptable, many advances in the water industry have been made in risk management, pipeline condition assessment and trenchless renovation and repair.

Who should attend?

Municipal engineers and technicians, consultants, pipeline engineers, trenchless technology specialist, and pipeline manufacturer.

Role and Importance of Geotechnical Engineer in Trenchless Projects, November 10

Date: November 10th

Location: Centre for Health and Safety Innovation 5110 Creekbank Rd, Mississauga.

 

This workshop focuses on geotechnical best practices and the role of a geotechnical engineer for a successful municipal trenchless projects. Municipal trenchless projects include new pipeline installations using microtunnelling, directional drilling, pipe jacking, pipe ramming and auger boring.  Common trenchless pipeline renovation includes Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) and Slip lining.  Over past 20 plus year the use of these construction methods have significantly increased in use and have become a common alternative to continuous open cut. Geotechnical site conditions are often critical for pipeline material selection and design, as well as, determining a feasible and cost effective trenchless construction methods.   The workshop will cover industry best practices and provide the perspectives of industry leading owners, consultants, suppliers and contractors.  It will also provide a lawyer perspective on the role of the geotechnical engineer in trenchless project litigation.

Condition Assessment and Rehabilitation of Drainage Culverts, November 5

Date: November 5th

Location: Mississauga Grand, 35 Brunel Road, Mississauga.

 

The deterioration and collapse of drainage culverts has become a critical issue for municipalities and transportation agencies. Furthermore, many jurisdictions have experienced severe storms and increased flooding frequencies, an indication of climate change, in recent years. This causes serious damage to existing utilities, roads and public properties in addition to social and financial costs. The municipalities and transportation agencies have to spend millions of dollars on costly repair and reconstruction of damaged infrastructure. Consequently, liabilities and insurance premiums are increased. This workshop will demonstrate how trenchless technologies can provide efficient and economical tools and techniques for pro-active inspection, repair/rehabilitation, or replacement of existing drainage infrastructure.
