Geo-Environment and Construction Conference
The conference Geo-Environment and Construction Conference – European Conference in Geo–Environment and Construction will be held in Tirana, from November 26th to 28th, 2015.
The Albanian Geotechnical Society (AGS) and Polis University are organizing the European Conference on Geo-Environment and Construction. The conference aims at providing a comprehensive coverage of theoretical and practical insights regarding geotechnical engineering, environmental issues and construction.
The initiative is supported by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), an international professional Association based in London, which represents the interests and the activities of engineers, academics and contractors involved in Geotechnical engineering. All of them are encouraged to participate in this Conference in order to present their works and to give useful contribution for the studying in this field, especially as regards geo-environment and construction fields.
The aim of the Conference is to present achievements and on this respect, to give evidence about what have been the main challenges, as well as to introduce the appropriate approaches that can be used on two main topics, such as: Geotechnical Engineering and Environment and Construction, Professional interaction and mutual experience interchange are the keywords of this event.
Maccaferri is going to share its experience as regards better environment solutions with an interesting abstract submission: “The advantages of concrete vertical walls MacRes System in urban areas” which will be presented by Giuseppe Lembo and Taulant Alilanj. Thanks to this abstract our engineers are going:
- to present an innovative technology for Albania, vertical reinforcing walls;
- to explain the construction methods by using geosynthetic reinforcement-Paraweb;
- to explain why this technology is better than other solutions;
- to indicate possible applications and other approaches related to the geotechnical conditions.
During the first days of the event the technical papers will be presented in several sessions and at the beginning of each session it will be a keynote lecture from invited professors. The third day includes a technical visit in one important Albanian landmark.
