Making use of underground heat


Making use of underground heat to provide hot water and heating for homes and industrial buildings - a process known as geothermal heating - will be described to delegates on stand B2 by staff from Roger Bullivant. The foundations specialist has developed a means of drilling deep into the earth to harness heat sources and transfer them back up to the surface to supply central heating systems.

Among many other items the company will also describe to visitors the benefits of its temporary foundations and how they could be used to support demountable spectator stands for the London Games.

'We are attending Civils to raise awareness of the services we offer and to invite customers to CPD talks and our RB Semex range of conferences, ' said underpinning and mini-piling managing director John Patch.
