Following on from our hugely successful photography competition, in winter 2019, the AGS launched a video competition to view the industry’s most creative clips.
A whole range of videos were submitted from members including recordings of rigs, ground improvement projects, geology models and concrete testing. The AGS Officers had the difficult task of reviewing each of the entries, and have shortlisted three outstanding clips:
1ST PLACE: In Situ Site Investigation, Rail Rig Time-Lapse Video
A time-lapse video which shows the simplicity of using CPTs on a railway using an RRV from the on-tracking process. Tests were completed either side of a bridge abutment to provide information about the ground material in order to rebuild a bridge.
2ND PLACE: Harrison Group Environmental Limited, Geology Model Video
A geology model representation of an investigated feature. The clip showed how data can be interpreted from geology “sticks” at each investigation location into triangulated surfaces. The resulting output helped to explain what occurred in the area and could be analysed further with tools such as section profiling.
3RD PLACE: Jones Bros and BWB Consulting, Sheet Piling and Ground Improvement Project
A short video showcasing sheet piling and ground improvement works on a geotechnically challenging project along a dual carriageway link road in Wigan.
Congratulations to In Situ Site Investigation who have won a Fortum and Masons Tanner Hamper worth £85. The hamper features an assortment of Fortnum’s classics, including sweet and savoury jars, a tea tin, biscuits and confectionery delights. Harrison Group Environmental Limited and Jones Bros & BWB Consulting, have each won a bottle of Champagne.
The AGS would like to thank all those who took the time to enter the video competition. The overall standard of entries was extremely high, and the judging panel found the task challenging in shortlisting the top three entries.
