No Dig India Show 2018 - Advancing Trenchless Standardization

The journey of Trenchless Standardisation, that started in India in 2007, has seen development of codes of practice of five most popular Trenchless techniques. In the year 2017, first revision of four codes, and second revision of one code has also been released. These codes provide appropriate inputs for application of such standardized techniques. To advance this process of standardisation, IndSTT is hosting the No Dig India Show 2018 at CIDCO Exhibition Center, Vashi, Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra on 14th & 15th December 2018.

Dec 14, 2018 - Dec 15, 2018
Target groups: skilled tradesmen, engineers, technicians, students, employees of public works departments, technology providers, utility surveyors
Category: Conference


In addition to publishing codes, over the same period, IndSTT has published commercial framework that includes contract conditions and schedule of rates, several guidelines for project planning, execution, and conclusion. With the introduction of newer codes, amplification of current conditions becomes imperative as that would help in maximizing the benefits of new editions. IndSTT intends to release new codes in line with directions of code committee, and revised editions of current framework and guidelines.

The main objectives of No Dig India Show 2018 include:

  • Releasing the new approved techniques list with respective deliverables and related guidlines

  • Releasing Codes of Practice suiting Indian conditions for subsurface utility engineering, and some of the remaining Trenchless Techniques as approved by the Code Committee

  • Revising and releasing commercial framework for trenchless applications and project linked guidelines

  • Providing inputs about newer trenchless construction methodologies to stakeholders

  • Drawing a road map for conducting City Level Trenchless events to assist ingress of Trenchless Technology in Government missions in association with city based stakeholders

The main topics on Day 1 include:

  • Trenchless technology standardization
  • Subsurface utility ingestigation and mapping
  • Trenchless project design
  • Development of new subsurface infrastructure

The main topics on Day 2 include:

  • Smart & sustainable cities utility network
  • Rehabilitation and replacement of aging subsurface utility networks
