Northern Ireland-based precast concrete supplier and manufacturer FP McCann is displaying its range of products at the New Civil Engineer Tunnelling Festival in London today, 06 December.

The NCE is bringing together the Tunnelling Summit and Tunnelling Awards ceremony at The Grange Tower Bridge Hotel. The interactive Festival will gather the thought-leaders, decision-makers and young engineers from the entire tunnelling community to network and share innovation and best practice across major UK and global tunnelling and underground projects. Exciting features include keynote talks, interviews and roundtable discussions.

FP McCann will demonstrate its collection of precast concrete shafts and tunnelling products in the exhibition zone of the event.

The team will be on hand throughout the day to network, provide expert advice and share experiences of major project partnering on various schemes, such as Crossrail, Thames Tideway and the VNEB (Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea).

Speaking on behalf of FP McCann's Tunnelling and Shafts division, National Tunnelling Products Manager, Stuart Carson said: "As the division has expanded through acquisition and major investment in manufacturing capability, we are greatly involved across the UK and overseas in a number of high profile projects in the tunnelling and shaft sinking sectors. The NCE Tunnelling Festival will help us to reinforce the message that FP McCann is now a leading supplier of segmental tunnels and shafts with the manufacturing capacity to service major contracts throughout the UK and further afield."
