Our managing director Liam Hanlon recently attended the Subsidence Forum Training Day on Thursday 12 October at Mythe Barn in Warwickshire.
As the Subs Forum chair, Liam welcomed the 160 delegates from a wide range of industry professions and introduced the trade stand exhibitors and the five training day demonstrators, before thanking the team that organised the training day event.
Liam gave the attendees an update on the Subs Forum executive roadshow, to profile the specialist services and professions represented on the committee.
With five apprentices from The Forshaw Group also attending the training day as part of their INS-Pire enhancement days, Liam thanked the forum for its support with the INS-Pire training academy.
Liam reminded the attendees about the aims and objectives of the forum:
- To keep an open dialogue with all involved
- Make increased use of social media and other digital channels
- Continued engagement with apprenticeships and training
- Collaboration with I LOVE CLAIMS
- Climate, Environment & Sustainability
- Develop relationships with Local Authorities and the London Tree Officers Association.
The delegates were then split into five groups to attend practical and technical demonstrations:
- Geofem – Satellite Monitoring
- PRI – Tree Identification
- Opera – Root Barrier & Jacking
- Stantec – Sink Holes
- Gryphon – Distortion Surveys
The forum also recorded the carbon footprint of the event, with data to follow providing a year-on-year comparison.
