ICE Engineering Underground Space 2016

Many current and proposed infrastructure projects in the UK are heavily reliant on underground engineering. This one day conference will help planners and engineers optimise the connection and liveability opportunities, promote resilience and highlight the specialist skills required.

Best practice case studies will help delegates understand how to use space more effectively, plan for sustainable developments and take away lessons from projects that are challenging and shaping the future of underground engineering.

The conference gives delegates the opportunity to learn about the latest technological developments and explore innovative strategies with their peers in the home of civil engineering, One Great George Street.
