The increasing frequency of flooding and a growing awareness of the effects of climate change are drivers towards a greater recognition of the importance of effective surface water drainage systems. This two day course aims to provide up-to-date information on current practice concerning design, construction and maintenance of highway drainage systems. Legislation with particular reference to the Flood & Water Management Act 2010 together with design and construction standards, appropriate materials and innovative solutions will be covered, focusing on achieving effective and maintainable drainage systems. Due emphasis is given to environmental aspects arising from climate change, the provision of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) and mitigation of flood risk. The course is presented by recognised experts in their field, who have extensive experience in the highways industry.

The UK has some of the most sophisticated ecommerce operations with the likes of John Lewis, ASOS and Shop Direct. These companies have invested millions to create state of the art facilities with sophisticated materials handling solutions to process the millions of orders received weekly.
For many organisations this level of investment is not only a dream but in reality not suitable for more modest ecommerce operations. This visit is aimed at organisations that have a fledgling ecommerce business and are looking for entry level solutions that will not break the bank and provide a quick return on investment.
The Superdrug facility is such an example and has been designed to handle in the region of 15,000 skus and a volume of up to 150k orders per week. The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity to see a solution and for attendees to discuss and share how to tackle the challenge of meeting volume growth in a cost-effective manner.
Please note, the delegate list for this event will be vetted.
Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

When: 24 April 2018, 17:30 for 18:00 - 20:00 Where: Inverness venue to be confirmed
Speaker: Ranald Roberton, Partnership Director, Highlands and Islands Transport Partnership (HITRANS)
The group will be welcomed by Ranald to the area and an overview of the activities, projects and strategy will be discussed. The HITRANS area includes the fast growing city of Inverness and other major settlements such as Elgin and Oban, while also remote islands with populations of under 100 people.“Smart Peripheral and Remote Airports (SPARA) is a 3 year, €2.4 million Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme Project designed to address the challenges facing remote & peripheral airports. These airports are economically vital, providing accessibility & connectivity to residents; however, with low traffic volume, strong seasonality challenges and ageing aircrafts, these airports suffer relatively higher costs of operating safely & compliantly and inevitably require state subsidy/intervention. SPARA aims to maximise revenues at remote & peripheral airports and increase their self-sufficiency and resilience long-term.
The Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme 2014-2020 is co-funded by the ERDF and more generally aims to help remote and peripheral communities on the northern margins of Europe to develop their economic, social and environmental potential. SPARA has been designed both to address the region’s needs, but also to explore issues that have resonance beyond Northern Europe, and to develop outputs that will deliver enduring benefits after the project concludes.
HITRANS is the lead partner of the project, with other Scottish partners including the University of the Highlands and Islands and Robert Gordon University. Sweden is well represented with Trafikverket (The Swedish Transport Administration), Sundsvall-Timrå Airport and Storuman Municipality involved, and the Northern Western Regional Assembly (NWRA) of Ireland represent airports such as Donegal and Ireland West (Knock) in the project. Molde University College in Norway and the University of Sydney in Australia are also project partners.”Sandwiches, tea and coffee will be provided.
