Two presentations: Environmental Engineering; Road Tunnel failures

  • 22 Mar 2018
  • 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Auburn Hotel - corner Auburn Rd and Victoria St Hawthorn, adjacent to Auburn railway station.


  • An evening on Environmental Engineering.

Ben Harley from FMG will explain Environmental Engineering Site Assessment and Auditing – what all property stakeholders need to know to avoid potential environmental pitfalls.  Ben will present an overview of the assessment and audit framework for contaminated land, covering environmental guidelines and standards, site assessment, remediation, the role of the EPA, and case studies.  Next,  Geoff Fletcher will describe a structural failure in a road tunnel in the USA in 2006.  It killed 1 person and was followed by a similar failure in Japan in 2012, killing 9.  The failure modes, effects analysis and legal processes around each are interesting, with implications for all disciplines of applied engineering.    Come along and enjoy a social relaxing drink on us from 6:30 pm.  We sit for dinner and the presentations at 7:00 pm.  Plenty of networking opportunities.  Please book and pay here.
