Conference to profile coastal slope best practise

Halcrow’s new “A Good Practice Guide” on coastal instability is to be presented at GE’s Slope Stability 2011 conference next month.

Halcrow head of engineering geomorphology and geohazards Professor Roger Moore will join a host of other speakers at the event on 6 December in London to present the new guide.

Moore has drawn on his two decades of experience in the guide which provides essential advice on stabilisation, monitoring and investigation techniques for coasts across the UK. At the conference he will look at effective management approaches to costal slope management as well as discussing funding issues and the most cost-efficient choices in the context of today’s economic climate and client organisation cut-backs.

This distillation of his two decades of experience encompasses climate change considerations and Environment Agency policy developments, to provide essential advice on stabilisation, monitoring and investigation techniques for coasts across Great Britain. He will cover effective management approaches to costal slope management as well as looking at funding issues and the most cost-efficient choices in the context of today’s economic climate and client organisation cut-backs.

The conference also features a range of expert speakers including the Highways Agency  geotechnical team leader Alex Kidd, British Waterways senior earth structures inspector Andrew Cawthorne, Arup associate Dr Juliet Mian and Atkins chief geotechnical engineer Andy Heald.

The conference promises to give a comprehensive update on the latest slope modelling and remediation techniques in addition to detailed client presentations on their evolving asset management strategies in times of tightening budgets.
