Soil Erosion due to Slope Instability is a Chronic Issue nowadays, undermining Local Environment and Human Settlements. The unpredictability of rainfall and adverse weather events make the environment increasingly vulnerable, jeopardizing human activities, interrupting roads and railway links; the economic impacts can be significant. Hydrogeological hazards with greater frequency fill the headlines today. Taking action to protect and stabilize unstable slopes and the soils upon them is by now an essential component of territorial planning: the stability of grounds upon how much of human activity is something that we cannot take for granted anymore.
Construction Industry is the top global consumer of raw materials, contributing 25% to 30% world’s Carbon Emissions. Therefore, sustainable option on Retaining Wall is crucial for the client to minimize Concrete and Steel Structures on their system and at the same time to increase on Cost Effectiveness and Performances on construction lead times. Public Awareness regarding the requirements on Environmental Quality Solution is dramatically increasing, less concrete more green solutions based is implemented in most of the development scheme as nowadays trends, Sustainable Engineering Solution on Retaining Wall System becoming equally important on reducing Carbon Imprint Emission with the option to green and eliminate concrete usage.
Speakers will introduce up to date Sustainable Engineering Solution on Slope Protection and Retaining Wall System with minimizes with agile and eco-friendly light and Cost-competitive Structures, the Ecological Footprint of each building site.
