Tim Newman and the BGA explain the struggles that have been faced during the Thames Tideway Tunnel excavations.
The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a 25 km long stormwater storage tunnel, up to 65m deep beneath central London and incorporating twenty shafts and ten smaller diameter connection tunnels. It has been constructed through the entire London Basin geological sequence which has had a significant influence on its design.
The large-scale underground structures excavated during construction have facilitated observations of the in-situ geology and revealed sedimentary characteristics that could not be fully evident in disturbed samples from ground investigation boreholes and laboratory tests. These have led to significant improvements in understanding the in-situ groundmass behaviour of several strata within the sequence and their impact on the performance of different construction techniques.
This is the first in a series of online workshops designed to give Graduate Members practical examples and expert feedback as they work towards becoming chartered. They are led by experienced engineers who have gone through or are currently going through the chartered process.
A five session course delivered by industry experts to develop in-depth knowledge of health, safety, and welbeing in civil engineering within the UK.
Digital transformation is crucial for sustainable workplaces in construction. BIM professionals will share the impact of digital transformation on sustainable workplace design, government policies promoting BIM adoption, and real-life examples of its benefits.
