After a first event on "Underground Space Use" organised by the ITACET Foundation and the Tunnelling Association of Nigeria in 2018, a follow up seminar on "The Main Tunnelling Processes" was held on 16th October 2019, in Abuja. A total of 35 participants coming mostly from Ministry Parastatals attended and were treated to lectures by Piergiorgio Grasso, Arnold Dix and Johann Brandl.
The seminar aimed to take a deeper look into the tunnelling processes with a presentation of some of the major issues related to design and construction aspects. The objective was to help project owners understand how to manage underground works projects and set up a suitable project organisation. The day ended with a lively round table on the subject of Project Management and Contractual Issues, chaired by Abidemi Agwor, President of the Nigeria Tunnelling Association (NTA).
