Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet Webinar-Open for Bookings

Bookings are now being taken for the Federation of Piling Specialists’ (FPS), Rig Bearing Pressure Spreadsheet Webinars, which are being held Thursday 3rd March; Thursday 7th April; Wednesday 25th May; and Thursday 14th July and all 12pm-1pm.

The Excel-based spreadsheet has been developed by the FPS to assist with the provision of Pile Design Schedules and should be used by Structural Engineers to provide the piling contractor with the information they need in order to produce a cost-efficient, appropriate design.

Each of the one-hour webinars will be hosted by Derek Egan from Remedy Geotechnics, and will be extremely educational, with attendees being talked through the spreadsheet, with a detailed explanation of how to use the tool correctly using worked examples. Attendees will be required to watch a training video prior to the live webinar that will take one-hour and details of this video will be provided following registration.

The workshops are free to attend for company members and associate members of the FPS, with a £95 + VAT charge for non-members.

Just 15 places are available on all webinars, except for Thursday 3rd March, where just one place remains.
