Geotechnical engineering and environmental issues central stage at the construction conference in Tirana.
The Geo-Environment and Construction Conference was held in POLIS-University, in Tirana, last November, as described inside the previous article published on November, 26th The Albanian Geotechnical Society, Co-PLAN and POLIS University have organized this important meeting attracting professionals from all over Europe.
The conference aimed to provide a comprehensive coverage of theoretical and practical insights regarding geotechnical engineering, environmental issues and construction. This initiative was supported by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) which is an international professional association, today based in London, grouping together engineers, academics and contractors involved in geotechnical engineering. Engineers, researchers and professionals from all over Europe were invited and encouraged to participate in this conference in order to submit written contributions and also to present their works.
The conference topics included all aspects of geo-environment and construction fields.
Further aim of the conference was to present achievements, evidence what have been the main challenges and introduce what appropriate approaches have been used.
In a context honoured by the presence of many university professors from all over Europe, Maccaferri had the pleasure to share its experience in environment-oriented solutions with this interesting abstract submission: “The advantages of concrete vertical walls MacRes System in urban areas” which was presented by Giuseppe Lembo and Taulant Alilanj. In this presentation our engineers introduced this innovative technology (vertical reinforcing walls) for Albania, sharing the way of construction using geosynthetic reinforcement – Paraweb. They focused on the advantages of MacRes System and Paraweb comparing to other solutions and described possible applications and other approaches related to the geotechnical conditions in the job site. Professional interaction and mutual experience exchange were important aspects of this event.
During the conference Maccaferri had the opportunity to organize an exhibition in the premises of Polis University attracting the attention of the conference guests for Maccaferri’s solutions and products.
