Civil Engineering Presentations at DWF

In late October, three of Hawkins Civil Engineers visited DWF’s Manchester Office to give presentations directly to solicitors currently working with forensic engineering-based claims.

Richard Giles-Carlsson, of Hawkins’ Manchester Office, gave a talk entitled, Management of Temporary Works and Lifting Operations. Richard has recently attended training courses on scaffolding inspection, combined tower scaffold and low level access, and mobile elevated working platforms. His work has recently been focusing on health and safety, as well as CDM regulations within the industry, and temporary works on construction sites. Richard also wrote a Hawkins Insight article about lifting operations, earlier this year.

Richard Keightley, of Hawkins’ London Office, presented on the Forensic Investigation of Floods. An expert in hydrology and ground water movement, Richard has also written an article for our website about the science behind flooding investigations, and more recently been featured in an article concerning the damage following Wales’ Storm Callum.

Andrew Reeves, of Hawkins’ Reigate Office, delivered a presentation entitled, The use of technology in Forensic Investigation: Scene Surveys with Lasers and Drones. Andrew often works on large-scale construction sites and building collapses, such as the Didcot A Power Station. Andrew has recently taken part in a featured interview for the Institute of Civil Engineers’ bicentennial commemorative album.

If you would like to schedule a presentation at your office, please contact us. Our engineers are happy to lead Q&A sessions on a variety of subjects within the industry, and are always interested in how we can best assist our clients on the investigation of claims.
