Professor Eddie will be reviewing the past, present and future of tunnelling and underground space technology with a particular emphasis on railway applications. He will outline the case for the use of innovative technologies and improved procurement processes which will dramatically reduce the cost and time to deliver tunnelling projects in the future.
He will conclude by explaining how explosive urbanisation around the planet is making the sustainable development of underground space an imperative for human survival.
Colin has over 40 years of experience in the design and construction of major underground infrastructure projects. Formally Engineering Director of the UK’s largest tunnelling contractor, he has led the detailed tunnel design and construction of projects such at HS1 North Downs Tunnel, Crossrail C510 and Tunnels at Heathrow T5. He is credited with the introduction of many innovations on these projects.
In 2017, he established his own specialist consultancy business and currently advises a global client base on a range of tunnelling and underground space issues from concept to handover. He is also regularly called upon to act as an Expert in dispute resolution cases.
In addition to managing his consultancy business, Colin is Professor of Practice at the University of Warwick. He is currently engaged with a number of industrial partners looking to bring new tunnelling materials and processes to market with a view to dramatically cutting cost and to further enhance safety.
