This year’s ECSMGE will be held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC), the first time the conference has been held in Scotland, with the theme focussed on Geotechnical Engineering for Infrastructure and Development. The week-long programme includes a technical visit to the Queensferry Crossing project, a local example of substantial earthworks and major foundation works both onshore and offshore.
Experts from ESG’s Infrastructure Services division will be on stand showcasing the company’s diverse technical capabilities across both land-based and overwater projects. In addition, ESG’s principal engineer, Dr Peter Hepton, has co-authored the paper ‘Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Phase 1 Ground Investigation – challenges, geological model and geotechnical design considerations’ which will bepresented during the conference.
As a leading geotechnical services provider and the UK’s number one choice for ground investigation, ESG provides a complete, integrated package of services, spanning the whole project lifecycle form the pre-build phase through to site investigation, design, construction and the built stages.
Philip Ball, ESG’s group technical director, commented: “This is the first year that ESG has exhibited at ECSMGE and it is a great opportunity to not only demonstrate our broad range of geotechnical expertise, but to also network with those involved in the field locally.
“ESG is focussed on further developing its operations in Scotland, through expanding our geotechnical laboratory, significantly investing in plant, and bolstering our team in Scotland, we aim to widen our integrated service offering form our Glasgow site.”
The XVI ECSMGE conference takes place at the EICC in Edinburgh from 13 to 17 September. To find out more about ESG’s infrastructure capabilities, please visit the website here. For more information on the conference, please visit the ECSMGE website.
