Drone technology adds another dimension to SoilsCon 2017

Delegates at SoilsCon 2017, which takes place in Henley-on-Thames on Wednesday, 18 October, will learn about the application of drone technology in site assessment, thanks to an additional presentation and demonstration organised by soil and landscape consultant Tim O’Hare for his annual soils conference.

An already packed SoilsCon programme, with speakers including Phil Askew, Carolyn Willitts, Tim and other leading industry experts, will now benefit from an additional presentation by Peter Wilder, who specialises in the integration of surface water management into urban and residential masterplans.

Peter’s interest in terrain modelling and hydrology led him to establish his expertise in drone survey in 2015. With the ability to map, model and design the landscape, he has established himself as one of the leading land planners in the UK. An associate and consultant to BRE and a visiting lecturer on SuDS and landscape technology at the University of Greenwich, Peter will speak at SoilsCon 2017 about the integration of drone technology into land planning, and the many applications for which this equipment can be used; weather permitting he will also conduct a demonstration of one of his drones during the conference lunch break.

This year’s SoilsCon will be the third soils conference to be organised by Tim O’Hare, and it promises landscape architects, contractors, garden designers, developers, topsoil manufacturers and other industry professionals a day of invaluable professional development, discussion and debate. For the first time a Soil Surgery will be run during the conference by members of the Tim O’Hare Associates team to help delegates with their specific soil issues.
