Environment Webinars

Crossrail has taken part in a number of webinars disseminating the learnings from the Environment Theme. A webinar with the Institution of Environmental Sciences provides an overview of the activity and lessons in the theme as a whole.

Crossrail also developed a specific series of webinars in conjunction with our partners (IEMA and CIRIA) in order to disseminate the detailed learnings from the topic areas within the theme.

In total there are ten webinars in the series, all of which are also available to view below. They cover topics ranging from the beneficial use of excavated material through to noise in construction as well as the initiatives used to collaborate with contractors to improve performance and provide environmental assurance for the project. An overview of how we dealt with the archaeology of the sites is also included using one site as an example.
