2000 Life Extension Technologies Forum: Urban Application of Trenchless Technology

Con Edison Learning Center - Long Island City, NY, USA
Jun 29, 2000

In recent years, urban development has proceeded at unprecedented rates. Increasing levels of investment in construction and numbers of work permits issued reflect this rapid pace of activity in the built environment. In June 2000, a facilitated day-long forum brought together stakeholders from government, industry, and academia who are familiar with the development process and the challenges of urban infrastructure planning, construction, and renewal and relevant institutional policies and contract practices. These stakeholders discussed new approaches for undergrounding construction and, with a focus on trenchless technologies, evaluated their potential for reducing the social consequences of construction. Con Edison, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, KeySpan Energy, and other organizations provided support for the forum.
