Call for sponsors – WA Symposium


The Western Australia Chapter of the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) is pleased to announce a one day symposium on “West Australian Geotechnics and Geology”.

Western Australia’s construction industry is currently booming. Investment in public infrastructure, mining and offshore developments is growing. Economical and safe geotechnical design requires efficient and well thought through ground investigation and characterisation to identify and manage ground risks and opportunities.

This symposium will present overviews of current state of-the-art practices, innovation, new research relating to WA geology and case studies of WA projects. There will be an emphasis on its implications for addressing and managing design and construction risk.

The symposium will bring together professional engineers, researchers, specialist contractors, regulators, educators and students to share and discuss their experiences on the topic of West Australian Geotechnics and Geology. Best practices, case histories and innovative methods for assessing and characterising ground risk will be presented and discussed, with a particular emphasis on the geology of the metro region and regional areas of WA.

The symposium will be a high profile event expected to attract in excess of 60 attendees. It is aimed at professionals from industry and academia including consultants, construction professionals, asset and project managers, researchers, graduates and students.
