TECHNICAL SEMINAR slots at next May's Civils 2000 exhibition are being rapidly snapped up just two weeks after proposals were first invited from Civils exhibitors.
Twenty seven presentations are now confirmed, leaving just 19 left open to would-be seminar presenters.
Consultants, contractors and professional bodies have been lining up to contribute, with seminars planned to cover a wide spectrum of engineering issues.
Seminars will be staged in two theatres and run across four days. The organiser, NCE editor emeritus Mike Winney, said the programme would be diverse, reflecting the wide range and scope of civil engineering and of the exhibition itself. Seminars are being allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Confirmed titles include:
Abbey Pynford managing director Paul Kiss on the moving of Belle Tout lighthouse, rescued from the cliff-edge at Beachy Head last year;
the latest on ground granulated blastfurnace slag from Appleby Group technical manager Mike Connell;
Loy Surveys on innovations in surveying and setting out;
design and construction in reinforced soil by Comtec;
STATS Consulting on measurement of strength and durability in reinforced concrete structures;
the challenges of remediating contaminated land by MEL Environmental Engineering; and
a joint presentation by Survey Supplies, Trimble and Rail Link Engineering on Europe's largest GPS network.
