Webinars @ SocEnv: Soil Management and Sustainable Construction on HS2 / Talk (title tbc)
The fourth series of Webinars@SocEnv has the umbrella topic of "A Sustainable Built Environment". Three individual webinars for this series will provide cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer opportunities for environmental professionals and beyond.
We'll be hearing from Chartered Environmentalists from professional bodies, universities, major infrastructure projects and independent consultancies. Sub-topics under the umbrella theme will include professionalism in arboriculture, the role of research, materials for High Speed 2 (HS2) and SuDS.
While our CEnv speakers and those linked with their work are specialists in their field, they will provide the perspectives from different sectors, which makes for an interesting debate. Our FREE webinar series and episodes are available for all to attend, last for a maximum of one hour and use a simple platform for you to watch and engage with the speakers. Ideal for lunchtime learning for those in the UK or similar time zones.
Part 3 - HS2 Special Soil Management and Sustainable Construction on HS2
HS2 is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken in the UK and its construction will involve the movement of a large volume of soil. The sustainable re-use of soils is a key mitigation measure for the project and this talk will look at the role of soils in sustainable construction and the strategies applied on HS2 to enable restored soils to be used for agriculture and landscape planting.
