Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Innovative Retaining Wall Systems (Webinar)

Due to increasing community and government concern over Coronavirus, Engineers Australia has decided to temporarily suspend all face-to-face events. This includes events which meet our previously imposed attendee limits. We will continue to offer members access to our online events and services such as EAXchange. We are also working hard to deliver more for our members in this area over coming months.

 

Join us for a webinar, as we hear from world-renowned industry experts about the evolving retaining wall landscape.

Discover how these innovative systems can be more cost-effective, environmentally sustainable and economically advantageous.

Our speakers are leading engineers from behind major retaining walls projects and will share their expertise through local case studies that have used modern and innovative retaining wall systems.

Key Themes:

  • Innovations in the design and application of retaining wall systems
  • Reducing costs and mitigating risk
  • Local case studies

The webinar is equal to 1.5 CPD hours.
