This conference will aim to showcase examples of best practice in geotechnical and geoenvironmental data management from all parts of the industry, including ground investigation specialists, designers and constructors.

The conference is being organised by the AGS Data Management Committee and our own Managing Director, Roger Chandler is a member of the conference organising committee.

There will be a focus on recent advances in the use of technology and the development of new processes.  Future needs and trends will be identified, including potentially disruptive changes.

All data management issues will be discussed in the wider context of digital engineering within construction generally, with particular emphasis on the role of geotechnical and geoenvironmental data management as part of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) process.
