FPS Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet Workshops Announced

Join the FPS in learning how to effectively use the Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet with Derek Egan, Managing Director of Remedy Geotechnics and UK Registered Ground Engineering Adviser.

The FPS has produced an excel based spreadsheet tool to assist with the estimation of track bearing pressures from piling rigs working on granular working platforms.

Structural Engineers should use this document and guidance to provide the piling contractor with the information they need in order 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 one-hour webinar will talk participants through the spreadsheet and explain how to use the tool correctly using worked examples. Attendees will be required to watch a training video before the live webinar which will take one- hour. Further details will be provided following registration.

Available dates:

– Thursday 2nd March / 12pm-1pm
– Thursday 13th April / 12pm-1pm
– Thursday 11th May / 12pm-1pm

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.
