Programme

  1. Chairman’s Welcome

    Jo Strange Jo Strange
    Technical Director, CGL
  2. Quaternary Geological Ground Models for the Reduction of Engineering Risk

    • The significance of the Quaternary to Engineering Geology and Brownfield Site Assessment
    • Conceptual Ground Models
    • Inherent complexity in glaciated & periglaciated terrains
    • Reduction of ground engineering risk
    Dr David Giles Dr David Giles
    Principal Lecturer in Engineering Geology, University of Portsmouth
  3. Brownfield Ground Risk Calculator: Ground Risk Prioritisation Tool for Brownfield Redevelopment Projects

    • Background behind the need;
    • Methodology used in the creation;
    • Results; and
    • Next steps and future benefits.

  4. Unlocking Geology: how to get involved in better ground information

    • 80% of Ground information is “lost” by not sharing data with a national repository;
    • Dig-To-Share initiative aims to unlock all that data to make it available to UKPLC - to reduce risk, reduce costs, and enable better Ground Model production;
    • BGS are developing software (Groundhog Desktop) to help draw Conceptual Site Models and Network Diagrams, specifically aimed at the contaminated land sector;
    • Geospatial Commission investigating various methods of making data more visible and interconnected with the latest project looking into buried assets

    Geospatial Data Specialist, British Geological Survey
  5. Lunch and Networking

  6. Developing a Detailed Monitoring Campaign based on Site Investigation Works

    • Field design based on preliminary site investigation and customer input, a detailed monitoring campaign can be developed;
    • On-site sampler installation;
    • Retrieval and lab analysis; and
    • Data analysis and reporting
