Part 1: Tuesday February 16th, 2021

Part 2: Thursday February 18th, 2021

1:00 PM- 4:00 PM EST



This two-day workshop will focus on the construction of municipal sewers and watermains using the Microtunnelling trenchless construction method. Over the past several years Ontario has grown from not using Microtunnelling to becoming a leader in North America for complex and challenging projects that include curved installations, and sea and lake outfalls. Microtunnelling construction benefits include: reduced risk during construction, large greenhouse gas emission savings, rapid out-of-sight and out-of-mind construction, and significant reduction in social and environmental costs. Attendees will learn from leading international and national industry experts on state-of-the art construction equipment, processes, design, construction risk mitigation, and quality control and quality assurance. In addition, local case studies will be presented to demonstrate how successful on-time and on-budget projects can be constructed locally. This is a workshop you will not want to miss and is held only once a year.

Who should attend?

Engineering consultants, contractors, technologists, municipal employees, field technicians, suppliers, infrastructure asset managers and anyone else who has an interest in municipal pipelines and wants to keep abreast of emerging industry trends to save money and environment.
