THE GROUP OF COMPANIES MOSPROEKT-3 HELD EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME WITH AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS
The team of the Group of сompanies Mosproekt-3 took part in a video conference with Michael J. Byle, D. GE (Geotechnical Engineering), member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). A two-day intensive educational course took place within the framework of the corporate education programme in cooperation with the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo.
Within the course the participants studied the options to minimize the soil subsidence adverse effect due to suffosion in the largest karst regions of the world.
“The Mosproekt-3 team studied a wide range of issues, including the comparative analysis of methods of engineering and geological research, methods for the elimination of karst craters, and approaches to forecasting the formation of karst deformations. Previously, we considered the European engineers’ expert opinion, now we have expanded the corporate knowledge base by the expertise of the North American colleagues,” said Anna Merkulova, CEO of the Group of сompanies Mosproekt-3.
When developing the projects, the engineers of GC Mosproekt-3 often face the risk of karst deformation that can emerge during contracted organizations’ further construction work. For instance, these phenomena are common when laying new lines of the Moscow metro. Now the experts of the Group of companies are involved in the design and engineering of the transport corridor “Western Europe – Western China”. The section of the freeway, allocated to the team of engineers of the Group of сompanies Mosproekt-3, is complicated by karst hazard.
“Our experts have a constant opportunity to upgrade their skills. This makes the Group of companies competitive in the market and guarantees project documentation of high quality to the customers,” added Anna Merkulova.
