Collaborating for digital innovation in engineering

An in-house innovation workshop is now a annual event for SRK experts to share their technological inventions. The idea of the workshop was sparked by a global SRK Practice Leaders meeting in 2015, which highlighted the value of the culture of innovation within the group. During the meetings, delegates found that they solved many of the challenges in their projects by drawing on the work of others.

More than 30 people attended this year’s meeting, including expert from SRK Argentina. Among the technical innovations that the firm has achieved through inter-disciplinary collaboration is in the field of tailings storage facility (TSF) waste water modelling and assessment of liner requirements. This has involved engineering expertise in tailings, geophysics and rock engineering, combined with groundwater modelling skills to develop tools for seepage analysis, for example.
