Adam Fox of Mason UK will be giving a talk about a project in Sweden, where helicopters landing on the roof of a new Swedish hospital would have caused undesirable structural vibration. The talk looks at the unusual vibration characteristics and how 2.0Hz isolators were engineered to work with the structure.

Colchester Institute’s Colchester Campus is within easy walking distance of both the railway station (Colchester Station) and the town centre. Walking from either location takes approximately 15 minutes.  The Meeting is being held in the Board Room, which is on the first floor, above the Institute’s Main Reception foyer.  The Board Room is directly opposite the first floor lifts.  The lifts are just to the right of the Reception Desk, as you enter the building.
