Pre-Event Workshops, Tuesday May 19th, 2020

The Centre for the Advancement of Trenchless Technologies (CATT) is proud to annouce the topics for the Pre-Event Workshops at the upcoming Trenchless Technology Roadshow 2020. 

 These programs are developed to provide industry professionals, municipalities, academics, and students the opportunity to contribute and learn about the advancements in trenchless technology, underground infrastructure initiatives and management.

All Pre-Event Workshops will be held at the Marriott on the Falls, 6740 Fallsview Blvd, Niagara Falls, ON L2G 3W6.

Introduction to Trenchless Technology

Course Description

Over the past century, municipalities across Canada have developed and expanded water distribution networks and waste water collection systems that consist of thousands of kilometres of buried pipelines. Today, municipalities are faced with the challenge of constructing new pipelines in crowded urban environments, as well as accessing and rehabilitating aging and deteriorated pipes. This is becoming an issue of increasingly strategic importance because it has strong social, environmental, and economical implications. This  workshop will provide you with an overview of the specific details associated with water distribution systems, pressure pipes and sewer networks with regards to understanding new construction methods, condition assessment, and renovation methods that require limited or no excavations. It will also cover requirements for implementation of a successful project from start to finish, including gathering the appropriate existing condition information, preliminary design, final design, specifications, tendering, construction, and temporary water and sewer bypass systems. Taught by the industry’s leading experts who will provide state-of-the-art information and case studies that demonstrate how trenchless technologies can save municipalities millions of dollars.

Who should attend:

This workshop will be of interest to water/wastewater utility owners, managers, operators, consultants and contractors who are interested in learning how trenchless construction techniques work, and cost-effective programs can be developed to construct and renovate water distribution and wastewater collection networks.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE)

Course Description

Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) provides designers and engineers with the tools to determine how the existing infrastructure will be affected by a project so that they can make adjustments and plan ahead to minimize impacts. This workshop will give an overview of SUE tools, techniques and applications. It will discuss CI/ASCE 38-02: Standard Guidelines for the Collection and Depiction of Exisitng Subsurface Utility Data published in 2003. The standard is the backbone for the practice of SUE. Keynote speaker is Lawrence Arcand. Lawrence is the only Canadian Member of the ASCE 38 update committee. He has served the industry in many capacities through the years. and is recognized as a leader in Utility Engineering. 

 Workshop Outline

  • Introduction to  SUE
  • Risk Mitigation toolbox and its application in the Trenchless Environment: Using ASCE 38-02; TAC Guideline for Utility Relocations and Coordination; and the CSA 250 the Canadian as Built Standard
  • Tools & Techniques: Assessing current tools and techniques used in the designating process of SUE. A look at the current technologies being used by the SUE providers and the pros and cons of the different tools. 
  • Improving Current SUE Specifications and tender documents: Developing your standards and guidelines; and using the SUE professional to assist in developing your standards.
