Location: Institution of Mechanical Engineers / London / United Kingdom
Category: Technology Engineering Conferences & Trade Fairs

Hear updates on current cross-sector tunnelling projects such as Hinkley Point C, Thames Tideway, the Northern Line extension and the Paisley Project. Gain insight into how the technical challenges were managed on the completed Crossrail and Lee Tunnel projects to take back to your organisation.

This unique event will also feature a half-day workshop on best practice in tunnelling health and safety, as well as systems to mitigate fire risk during construction and operation. Take the opportunity to be part of the discussion around the importance of prioritising safety and human factors through our round table sessions.
