On December 2nd Maccaferri held a Drainage Workshop for Infrastructure, with the support of CREA & ABMS.
The Regional Council of Engineering and Minas Gerais Agronomy and the Soil Mechanics Brazilian Association and Geotechnical Engineering, Core Minas Gerais. supported Maccaferri fro the Drainage Workshop for Infrastructure
This workshop was attended by engineers, consultants, builders, graduate students and post-graduate degree in Civil and environmental engineering, architects and geologists. In total more than 100 subscribers.
The workshop had 3 main themes:
• Importance of deep drainage system for the lifetime of the highway.
Speaker: Prof. Eng. Mark Jabor.
Eng Civil by the Kennedy School Engineering – MG, Specialist Road Engineering – PUC-MG, Consultant in Hydrological Studies and Drainage Project / Project Management – DER / MG, Consultant IDB Independent, in the area of Hydrology and Highway Drainage and Urban Drainage. Teacher’s Course MBA in Infrastructure Transport and Highways by INBEC / UNICID. Professor, Postgraduate Course in “Roads with Emphasis on Highway Drain” – FEAMIG – MG.
• Challenges and Solutions drainage in mining works.
Speaker: M.Sc. Eng Robson Siqueira.
With an extensive experience in multidisciplinary engineering projects, mainly focused on mining ventures. His performance includes development of studies and hydrologic / hydraulic projects for reservoirs and dams, mine structures drainage, flood control, water balances, capture / adduction, pumping, grants, Robson is a civil engineer graduated from the School of Engineering at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and a Masters in Nuclear Sciences and Techniques in the area of Energy Planning (UFMG).
• Innovative Solutions for drainage.
Speaker: Eng. Paulo Eduardo Oliveira Rocha
Civil engineer graduated from the School of Engineering of São Carlos – EESC USP, Postgraduate in PMI Project Management at SENAC and student in the master’s program in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Campinas – Unicamp. Associate Professor of Soil Mechanics, Earth Works and Introduction to Civil Engineering at the Faculty Padre Anchieta and Maccaferri Technical Coordinator Latin America, which provides technical support to engineers, designers, technicians and customers of the company, besides working in the development and creation of technical tools related to solutions in gabions and geosynthetics.
The presentations were excellent not only for experience and mastery in the subject, but mainly to support, trust and recommend the Maccaferri solutions for drainage, the MacDrain TD in particular, also highlighting the problems caused due to the neglect of minor drainage projects highways in Brazil. The importance happened also because through his explanation strengthened our technical position on the matter sub surface drainage.
