2nd Annual Delivering Urban Transit Infrastructure Conference
Urban transit projects continue to shape the growth of Canadian cities and knowing how to successfully deliver these complex projects is a challenge.
Attend The Canadian Institute’s 2nd Annual Delivering Urban Transit Infrastructure Conference on April 27 & 28, 2016 and take away an arsenal of tools to help you successfully manage and deliver your infrastructure project.
Glenn Ackerley, Chair of the Construction practice at WeirFoulds, will moderate the panel discussion “Managing Underground Utilities” on Thursday, April 28.
While cities endeavor to improve their transportation networks while keeping their traffic moving, the often limited options for surface routes and lack of surface space, increasingly conspire to bring the tunneling option to the fore. As a result, managing buried infrastructure is at the forefront in terms of challenges for many transit projects. Since visual inspection of the underground utilities is not possible, it is hard to determine or estimate the complexity and risk that will be involved when faced with buried utilities, such as water, cable, gas or electric. Join our expert panel to discuss strategies for handling this underground.
