Aarsleff Ground Engineering are hosting a free online webinar with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) on the 27th February at 1pm, looking at the emergency repairs carried out to a section of the retaining wall outside the famous Gibraltar Rock Pub in Tynemouth.
Aarsleff’s Geotechnical Estimator Chris Purvis, who has a wealth of geology knowledge in the North of England, will discuss the project from start to finish and take listeners through the challenges and constraints of designing the retaining wall solution, including design life, construction programme and environmental & sustainability considerations.
This presentation will also provide:
- A background to the project, include the history and geology of the Tynemouth area
- The challenges and constraints of designing a retaining wall solution, including design life, construction programme and environmental and sustainability considerations
- A detailed insight into the construction of the new retaining wall, including a technical look at ground engineering techniques used, the method of demolishing the existing wall and the problems that occurred whilst on site
- The lessons learnt from the project regarding health and safety, effective project management, the technical challenges encountered and what could have been done differently
