On April 26th and 27th, Foundation Supportworks exhibited at the Foundation Repair Association’s annual conference where they displayed their line of foundation stabilization systems. Throughout the event, many engineers, architects, and foundation repair contractors visited with Foundation Supportworks about the benefits of their systems and the various applications where they can be used to permanently stabilize settling structures.
The event was held in San Antonio, TX and was attended by more than 160 engineers, architects, and geotechnical contractors from around the United States. The conference was divided into social, educational, and professional segments to highlight the advancements in the foundation repair industry. Among the topics that were presented during the short course seminars included Proper Foundation Design, Engineering Ethics, and Foundation Repair Methods.
The Foundation Repair Association (FRA) is a national organization that exists to promote high ethical standards in the practice of foundation repair, and to promote cooperation between the foundation repair industry and government.
During the week of March 13, 2011, Foundation Supportworks exhibited at the Geo-Frontiers 2011 conference where they displayed their line of helical foundation systems. Throughout the week, many engineers, students, professors and foundation repair contractors visited with Foundation Supportworks engineers about the benefits of helical pile and helical anchor systems.
The event was held in Dallas, TX and was attended by more than 1,900 engineers, architects, students, professors and geotechnical contractors from around the world. The conference featured advances in geotechnical engineering and attendees had the opportunity to participate in training sessions where they could obtain professional development hours and learn about leading technologies in the geotechnical industry.
The event featured six full-day short courses, four plenary session lectures, more than 450 papers presented in 89 technical sessions, student activities and competitions, ample time for networking, and informational exhibits.
Engineers throughout the northeast participated in continuing education seminars conducted by Foundation Supportworks in New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts on June 2-4. Jeff Kortan, P.E. and Don Deardorff, P.E. presented a four hour course on the design, common applications, installation procedures, and testing procedures for helical foundation systems, helical soil nails and hydraulically-driven push pier systems. The courses had been approved for four PDH’s (Professional Development Hours) through ACEC of New York. “We had great interaction from attendees at each of our three offerings,” said Kortan. “Many of the engineers we spoke with were unfamiliar with the typical applications of these products and immediately could see how these products would benefit them on projects they are working on right now.”
