Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet Workshop


Time to event


1st Dec 2020 10:00




The Federation of Piling Specialists has produced an Excel based spreadsheet to assist with the provision of Pile Design Schedules.

Structural Engineers should use this document as guidance to provide the piling contractor with the information they need to produce a cost-efficient, appropriate design. If information is not provided in this format, there is significant potential that the resultant piling scheme will far exceed the need for the project.

This two-hour interactive webinar, hosted by Derek Egan from Remedy Geotechnics, will talk participants through the spreadsheet and explain how to use the tool correctly using worked examples. Derek will provide live coaching to participants and ensure that the correct approach is taken when using the tool. To make the most of Derek’s extensive knowledge it is encouraged that participants keep their videos on and ask questions throughout!

The workshop is free to attend for company members and associate members of the Federation of Piling Specialists. There is a £95 + VAT charge for non-members to attend.

This Workshop is now fully booked.

There are only 15 places available for this webinar, which will be offered on a first come first served basis. Invoices must be paid within two weeks of receipt. If payment is not received, your place will be offered to the next candidate in line.

If the webinar is full, you will be added onto a waiting list and informed if a place becomes available. If the webinar remains at full capacity, we will inform you when registration opens for the next Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet Workshop.

FPS company members who confirm their attendance but do not attend the webinar will be required to pay a £50 fee.
