Strainstall is pleased to be presenting at the CIRIA hidden defect roadshow this July 4 in Solihull, West Midlands.
The event is the second of four dates in the roadshow and will bring together experts from across the construction sector to discuss the latest developments in hidden bridge defect detection and monitoring.
The roadshow has been launched to open discussions around CIRIA’s recently released guidance on hidden defect detection, of which Strainstall was a contributor. The guidance explores emerging technologies that assist hidden defect management and implementing structural repairs that can prevent formation or mitigate their impact.
The first roadshow, held at the beginning of June proved a great success, with delegates benefiting from expert commentary and networking opportunities. In addition, each event will provide an overview of this critical good practice guidance, and how it can be used to mitigate the risk of hidden defects which lead to bridge failure, as well as showcase a number of UK and international studies.
Matthew Anderson, technical authority at Strainstall and speaker at the roadshow said:
“Testing and monitoring has a key role in the management of many bridge defects; helping to quantify potential problems, facilitate pre-emptive repair work and ultimately increase operational lifespans.
“Emerging technologies are providing huge opportunities for smarter collection and analysis of data, providing much better information about asset condition. For these reasons we’re pleased to be able to sponsor the roadshow, share our expertise and take the opportunity to discuss ideas and innovations from across the bridge engineering community.”
