A brand new 2-day event for contaminated land professionals and developers offering a practical approach to effective hands-on site investigation and improving the quality, management and communication of site investigation data.
Brownfield Briefing is pleased to bring you the 2017 Effective Site Investigation and Data Management Conference. Responding to a clearly identified need and based on detailed research this new event has been designed to assist site investigation professionals and their clients in sourcing, manipulating and sharing the ever-increasing volumes of data required when evaluating previously used land. Communication of information between disciplines has never been more important and the conference will seek to shed light on the best working practices whilst also providing an opportunity to examine concerns around data security and liability.
Day One will focus on effective site investigation looking at current industry drivers to improve the quality and reporting of SI data as well as advances in measurement techniques. The day will include all-important updates on recent and forthcoming standards and issues around site safety and practical case studies looking at challenging environments. Key topics will include:
- The new NQMS scheme for land contamination management – how will it work in practice?
- Technical advances in site investigation techniques such as remote telemetry
- Effective collaboration and communication to enhance efficiency and outcomes
On Day Two delegates will hear about advanced techniques for collecting and combining site data as well as developments in the use of GIS in data management and adding value. Speakers will address the availability of geotechnical datasets and also standards, recommendations and common formats which facilitate effective data exchange. However, in an environment where there is more data available than ever before it is also essential to understand the requirements of clients and regulators in order to avoid unnecessary and costly accumulation of information. The conference will therefore examine the use of geostatistical techniques to improve site investigation and modelling and also offer a laboratory perspective. Further topics include:
- Acceptability of on-site data
- Case studies describing the combination of diverse data-gathering technologies and also effective working across companies and supply chains
The key theme throughout the conference is the effective exploitation of modern investigation techniques, data sources and software to enable effective collaboration and to produce high quality information. Providers of software, data, technology and services will also benefit from this detailed view of the needs of practitioners, clients and regulators. Delegates attending both days of the conference will gain the most complete picture of this complex topic however it is also possible to attend just Day One or Two.
