A seminar taking place at Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Bristol on Wednesday 17 May is attracting lots of interest from the Bristol construction community.

Hosted by one of the world’s leading soil mixing ground remediation contractors, Deep Soil Mixing Ltd, the topic of the seminar that has got everyone interested, focuses on ‘Tackling Complex Land Remediation Problems’ and how the construction industry can remediate Brownfield sites in an environmental and sustainable way through the use of soil mixing.

The lunchtime CPD seminar is free to attend and will include demonstrations by Deep Soil Mixing Directors Robert McGall and Colin Critchlow on their latest techniques as well as highlights from a few innovative projects the company has recently undertaken.

“We’re really looking forward to the seminar this month as it is a great opportunity for engineers and contractors working within the industry to find out more about deep soil mixing techniques and all the associated benefits for ground remediation projects of every size”, says Colin Critchlow, Director at Deep Soil Mixing.

“Since 2012, we’ve enjoyed some incredible advances in the techniques we use on our ground improvement and soil stabilisation work and are able to overcome even the most problematic ground conditions. As a result of this, we have a reputation for undertaking challenging and difficult projects – something that is positively impacting on the world of civil engineering. As a company, we want to show just how our techniques can transform poor quality land or contaminated land into commercially viable land ripe for development without the need for removing soil from the site”.

“Soil mixing is a relatively new civil engineering method to the UK but we have already demonstrated how environmentally friendly, cost effective and time saving construction method it is, and during the seminar we will demonstrate how soil mixing assisted the construction of the Mersey Gateway Crossing in Cheshire, as well as touching on other exciting, innovative projects that we’ve delivered including a project with a Newport County Council Landfill site and a recent Institute of Highways Engineers sustainability and environmental award winning road project in the West Midlands, and the remediation of severely contaminated ground at a major manufacturing site in the South East. The location we’ve chosen for the seminar celebrates and remembers the world’s greatest engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and his hugely important ship Brunel’s SS Great Britain. As part of the event, all attendees will be able to explore this impressive ship after the seminar, free of charge”.

“We’ve designed the event with civil engineers and building contractors in mind and want as many professionals involved in the industry to come along on the day. We have lined up what we hope will be an exciting and dynamic showcase of the most recent deep soil mixing techniques and will be available to answer any questions from attendees at the end of the seminar. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the seminar on Wednesday 17 May.”
