ICES Northern Counties Derwent Reservoir and Dam Site/Technical Visit

Northumbrian Water Ltd will be hosts for what will be an interesting visit in the 50th anniversary of the construction of this unique dam.

The visit will commence at Derwent Reservoir DH8 9TU at 9.30am for a site tour which will be lead by Kevin Miller the supervising (panel) engineer for this dam and will involve a valve tower and tunnel access walk through, opening of a 48 inch needle scour valve into the spillway with visits to dam seepage flow control points and piezometer locations.

Mark Mande (Project Electrical Engineer) will provide an overview on recent modifications to the Derwent Hydro Generator –“Turbine inlet and compensation actuator control”. This will round off what will be a good Civil Mechanical and Electrical insight into this structure.

Following this a free buffet lunch will be provided at the nearby Mosswood Water Treatment facility DH8 9BD and a film show taken during the construction will follow with a 30min question/answers session when questions can be made to Kevin Miller regarding any aspect of the dams construction and operational matters.

Numbers are limited to 15 so please book early.

CDM 2015: is your project in line with the current regulations09/11/17

Organisation: RIBA
Date: 09/11/17
Time: 14:00
Speaker: Danny Coomber, Butler & Young Group Ltd
Venue: Gateshead Civic Centre
Cost: Non-member - £106.80 (£89 + VAT), Student member - £18 (£15 + VAT), Member - £74.40 (£62 + VAT)

Region: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne
Time of Day: Day
Topic: Other

The application of CDM is more of an art than a box ticking exercise for compliance. CDM 2015 goes further than previous versions in expecting the construction industry specialists to know their ‘business’.

It takes great skill, knowledge and experience to weave health and safety compliance through the construction design process. The art is to complete it without a specific reference to anything as staccato as legislation and regulation, as often as possible.

Through the use of a case study, this seminar will explore the various duty holder roles and responsibilities, and will explain how, in the pre-construction phase of a project, the Principal Designer is expected to take control of planning, managing and monitoring of health and safety. This seminar will address what must be done, what should be done, and what that might look like in practice, so far as reasonably practicable.
