The AGS has secured a special discount for members on delegate passes for Ground Engineering’s new Transport Geotechnics conference this autumn.

Design, construction and maintenance of geotechnical assets on transport infrastructure will be placed under the spotlight at GE’s new conference, which will be held on 3 October at the Victoria Park Plaza hotel in London.

The event will be co-located with GE’s established Basement and Underground Structures conference with a shared exhibition and networking area.

The latest speakers to be confirmed for the Transport Geotechnics event will ensure discussions cover client, consultant and contractor perspective on the current issues affecting geotechnical assets.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Jacobs technical director for ground engineering Christina Jackson and she will look at the challenges and opportunities for the industry.

Case study presentations will give detailed insight into the construction of the Bexhill North Access Road, Cambrian rock cutting, A9 dualling project and the A19 Coast Road. Best practice will also be considered with presentations from Aecom executive director John Endicott on geotechnical baseline reports and Fugro global director Rob Eddies on the value added by undertaking early ground investigation. Proactive monitoring and the use of data in asset management will be discussed.

The event will conclude with a panel debate on rising to the challenge of delivering future projects on time, on cost and with technical excellence. Keynote speaker Jackson will be joined by British Drilling Association chairman Martyn Brocklesby, Mott MacDonald major projects portfolio director Chris Dulake and Kier managing director for infrastructure Sean Jeffery.
