CONTEXT


Issues:

–  Challenges in administrative approval of geotechnical works
–  Urban geotechnical environment regulation challenges
–  Good practice rules for avoiding geotechnical structures construction accidents
–  Deep cut-and-cover technology challenges
–  Urban tunneling ground investigation, design and construction
–  Geotechnical and structural monitoring. Early warning systems
–  Existing structures reinforcement for supporting new adjacent geotechnical structures
–  Soil mass stability in urban area

Target public:

–  construction companies;
–  designers;
–  monitoring companies;
–  local authorities: city managers, chief architects, urban planners.
