Mon Sept 12TH
Preservation of Airfield Pavements through Innovation
As budgets continue to tighten and more and more emphasis is placed on pavement preservation, the construction and long-term maintenance of airfield pavements is becoming increasingly challenging. To address this, new innovations in paving materials and procedures are being introduced all the time. Gradually, these innovations are changing some of the traditional ways of doing things, while saving time, money, and the environment in the process.
Attend the workshop, either in-person in Montreal or on-line, to learn about recent advancements in airfield pavement technology and how they can be applied to upcoming projects at your airport.
Come join us for this unique professional development and networking opportunity!
