The course was held over two days on 2nd-3rd September and focused on 'Sustainability in underground design and its practical implementations.'
Day one provided a general introduction to sustainability in tunnelling, with both contractors and clients giving their perspective on how the carbon footprint of tunnelling projects can be reduced. The use of underground space as a means to promote sustainability was explained, with a case study from Helsinki, Finland. This first day rounded off with a workshop on underground space planning.
Day two focused on two distinct topics - immersed tunnelling and mechanized tunnelling - with a look at how sustainability aspects can be introduced in each case.
This event was a great opportunity to benefit from the knowledge of some of the top names within the ITA community and to network with likeminded professionals eager to push sustainability in tunnelling to the next level.
We would like to thank all those who contributed to the realization of the training session !
