Teesside Branch Technical Talk   

This is a Teesside Branch event organised and run by the Teesside Branch Committee on behalf of Branch members. Other members and non-members are very welcome to register for this talk. .

Overview: Although EN 1090-2 is at the core of inspection and testing, this standard is heavily modified by UK specifications for building and bridge works. This fact is often missed by those responsible for its administration and procurement resulting in non-compliant works.

Speaker: Julian French (Partner at Sandberg)

Speaker Biography: Julian French started engineering in 1973 at Head Wrightson Teesdale, Thornaby. He is now a Partner in the London based consultancy, Sandberg LLP, which he joined in 1975.
