The cost to build underground construction projects can reach into the billions of dollars, and the trend toward larger and larger projects in more challenging geologic environments continues worldwide. However, the cost can be even higher if careful risk management practices are not adopted and implemented in the project planning, design and construction phases.
As a result, Risk Management in Underground Construction is being held Nov. 14-16 at Florida International University in North Miami, Florida. The event will bring together leading stakeholders –bonding/surety companies, construction law, professional engineering, contractors, and public and private project owners – involved in large-scale underground construction projects. Risk Management in Underground Construction will explore all aspects of risk management, with presentations and panel discussions.
The speakers will comprise recognized experts involved in the international underground construction sector, including contractors, facility owners, engineers and consultants, insurance professionals and lawyers.
The event will benefit anyone involved in the planning, implementation, construction or management of large underground construction projects, including contractors, facility owners, engineers and consultants, insurance professionals, lawyers, and equipment manufacturers and suppliers.
Risk Management in Underground Construction is organized by Ozdemir Engineering, Microtunneling Inc. and Benjamin Media. Together, they have organized more than 30 events providing education for the underground construction and tunneling market sector.
