Last week CGL Principal Engineer Adam Branson was one of the speakers at Geotechnica 2017, the UK’s largest geotechnical conference and exhibition.

Adam was part of the morning discussion panel for AGS/BDA Task Force – Spotlight on the Industry. Adam and members of the respective bodies of the Association of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Specialists (AGS) and the British Drilling Association (BDA) updated the industry on the AGS/BDA 2016 survey results. The key high and low lights of the survey were discussed in an open forum to allow further discussion on the future challenges for the industry.

Geotechnica was developed in 2009 to bring together all areas of the geotechnical industry, from suppliers and manufacturers through contractors to clients. It brings these disparate parts of our industry together for a single focussed event, helping to promote the best specialist services, products and innovations within the industry.
