Webinar: Geotechnical asset management – balancing the risk of failure with cost of repair

GE’s first webinar talks about geotechnical asset management and explores how the sector can better balance the risk of failure with cost of mitigation and remediation

Geotechnical asset management webinar

Ground Engineering editor Claire Smith was joined by Network Rail route asset manager for Kent Derek Butcher, ground stabilisation specialist Clive Edmonds of Peter Brett Associates and Uretek’s geneal manager Peter Dance and engineering manager Dan Hadfield

Weather-induced failure of rail lines, subsidence of roads and differential settlement of buildings means that the need for resilient geotechnical assets for infrastructure owners, businesses and home owners has never been more apparent.

While the immediate response to undertake emergency repairs there is a clear need to better assess geotechnical assets to identify those that are at risk in extreme conditions and to undertake remedial repair to prevent failure.

Ground Engineering editor Claire Smith was joined by Network Rail route asset manager for Kent Derek Butcher and ground stabilisation specialist Clive Edmonds of Peter Brett Associates to discuss the challenges and solutions to achieving better management of geotechnical assets. The panel also included subsidence remediation specialists Uretek’s general manager Peter Dance and engineering manager Dan Hadfield to look at best practice for managing and maintaining geotechnical assets and how best to balance the risk of failure with intervention.
