Hawkins Hosts Cocktail Evening at the Singapore Cricket Club

On the 28th of November, Hawkins’ Singapore Office hosted a cocktail evening for around fifty guests at the Singapore Cricket Club. Dr David Rose, Director of the Singapore Office, would like to extend his thanks to everyone who was able to attend.

Colleagues from Singapore were also joined by Managing Director Dr Andrew Moncrieff, of Hawkins Cambridge, Andrew Reeves, of Hawkins Reigate , Dr Chris Wareham of Hawkins Dubai, and both Dr John Allum and Jessica Ng of Hawkins Hong Kong.

Prior to the event, Hawkins investigators attended meetings in both Hong Kong and Jakarta as well as Singapore. Andrew Reeves, a civil engineer, gave several presentations illustrating the ways in which Hawkins engineers are now using drones on site after an incident. LiDAR technology (Light Detecting and Ranging) used in laser scanning has advanced from ground level, and now offers the forensic engineer an unobstructed bird’s eye view of a construction site, fire scene, flooded area, or other location under investigation. By using a drone, rather than terrestrial-based laser scanning, shadows and barriers in the way of an item of interest can be reduced and the quality of the scans, in turn, enhanced.

Comments after several of these presentations displayed interest in pre-loss risk assessment of a building, geotechnical engineering, and the current methods for taking accurate imagery. These intriguing subjects also fuelled the discussions between colleagues throughout the evening at the Singapore Cricket Club.
