THE GROUP OF COMPANIES MOSPROEKT-3 TOOK PART IN THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM PROVIDED BY THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS
The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 team took part in a video conference with Dr. of Geotechnical Engineering, member of theAmerican Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Michael J.Bale. Two-day educational course took place within the framework of the corporate education program in cooperation with the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo.
“The Mosproekt-3 team has studied a wide range of issues, including 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. Participants have considered options to minimize the adverse effects of soil subsidence due to suffocation in the world’s largest karst regions. Previously, we considered European engineers’ expert advice, now we have expanded the corporate knowledge base by the experience of the North American colleagues,” Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO, said.
The Mosproekt-3 engineers often face the risk of karst deformation that may exist during a future construction work. For example, these phenomena are common when laying new lines of the Moscow metro. Now specialists of the Company are involved in the design of the transport corridor Western Europe – Western China. The section of the road, defined to the team of engineers of the Group of Companies Mosproekt-3, is complicated by karst hazard.
“Our specialists have a constant opportunity to upgrade their skills. This makes the Company competitive in the market and guarantees quality project documentation to customers,” Anna Merkulova added.
