If you are located in the Northeast, Mid Atlantic or Southeast regions of the United States where we operate, and your company has employees who are interested in micropiles and their applications, my company will provide lunch and learn seminars in your office at no cost to you. Contact me to schedule a training seminar on Micropile Fundamentals or Ground Anchors and Anchored Structures. We can also provide training on ground improvement techniques and products such as Rammed Aggregate Pier® systems including Geopier® and Impact® Pier and other technologies such as Rapid Impact Compaction (RIC).
Rammed Aggregate Pier®, Geopier®, and Impact® are registered trademarks of the Geopier Foundation Company.
This year, there will be two major micropile training events put on by leading industry associations involved in the design and construction of micropiles. There typically are one or two of these events each year throughout the United States and internationally.
April 8, 2010 – All day event
DFI / ADSC Micropile Seminar
Toronto, ON Canada
This event is produced by the Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) / International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC) Joint Micropile Committee. See www.dfi.org for details and registration information.
September 2010 (exact day TBD)
ISM Micropile Seminar
This event is produced by the International Society for Micropiles (ISM) in conjunction with their annual International Workshop on Micropiles (IWM). See www.ismicropiles.org for details and registration information.
These are GREAT opportunities to learn about micropile design and construction from an array of national and international authorities on micropiles. Don’t miss out!
One feature that I think will be particularly useful to visitors is the ability to post questions regarding micropiles. Post a question as a comment to this section and I will repost it with an answer (if I know the answer). I will delete the comment after I repost it with and answer. Be patient, your question may require some research.
Welcome to the Micropile Design and Construction Blog! This is your online source to up-to-date micropile design and construction news and information. This effort is currently a work in progress and probably always will be due to the constantly changing nature of the industry. It is my hope that this will be a valuable resource to those who are interested in micropiles or foundation engineering in general. Enjoy!
