Mark will present a talk at the Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo on the "Nearshore Marine Site Characterisation Projects to Reduce Project Construction Risk". 

He will talk through client challenges and how effective site investigations can de-risk the preconstruction phase of a project through integrated geophysical and geotechnical solutions. What’s more, Mark will explore how a robust ground model can result in substantial savings in time, cost and construction. Finally, he will highlight how innovations such as the versatile WaveWalker1 jack-up platform, can benefit clients working in challenging nearshore environments.
