Technical workshop GEOPIER

We attended the technical training for the design of Geopier Ground Improvement Technologies including Rammed Aggregate Pier® Systems. It was held in Phoenix, Arizona from October 11 – 13, 2018. The training was provided by Geopier Foundation Company, Inc. under the supervision of Brian Metcalfe, P.E., Dr. Kord Wissmann P.E., D.GE., Juan Pablo Rodriguez, P.E., and Rob Condon, P.E. There were attendance by over 30 geotechnical engineers from the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The workshop was covered the installation, design, and application of Geopier® ground improvement systems. We made technical briefings, design examples, and classroom exercises. It was really nice international experience with possibility to discuss the geotechnical topics. Geopier® ground improvement systems are very effective and economical ways of subsoil improvement.
