Keynetix recently exhibited at the Geotechnics in the Rail Industry Conference, which took place at the National Railway Museum in York on Tuesday 12th May 2015.

The conference and exhibition, organised by the Yorkshire Geotechnical Group of Institute of Civil Engineers, covered the geotechnical asset management, earthwork failures and remediation, geotechnics of structures in a rail environment, new railways and future planning.

Speakers from Network Rail, Mott MacDonald, Arup, Donaldson Associates, Coffey Geotechnics, British Geological Survey, Cementation Skanska, Heriot Watt University and BAM Ritchies covered the following key themes: [list type=circle_list]

  • Geotechnical asset management
  • Earthwork failures and remediation
  • Geotechnics of structure in a rail environment
  • New railways
  • Future planning

The conference and exhibition provided significant exposure for Keynetix. Whilst there were people from companies that we know very well and use our software in multiple offices, HoleBASE SI and KeyLAB are underused in the rail sector.

It was, therefore, a great opportunity to introduce our software to help to show them the capabilities they already have operational in their other divisions.  It was also very exciting to discuss projects we’re currently working on and what they could mean to the future of geotechnics in the rail industry.

This was such a fantastic venue to exhibit at with so much history at the Railway Museum, there was so much to see.  Here’s a little look at the show and the venue.
