SUCCESSFUL LIME/CEMENT COURSE

Our course on lime and cement stabilisation on 30 April was a great success.  Lead by Dr Paul Beetham, it was technically challenging, generated lively discussions from enthusiastic delegates and received very good feedback.  We have already started a waiting list for a re-run in early July so let us know if you would like further information on it.

FUNDAMENTALS OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Our “Fundamentals of Geotechnical Engineering” course on 11 April 2019 went really well.  Feedback ratings showed it was rated at least good in all aspects, with 97% of the ratings very good or excellent.   As ever it was a long day, running up to 7.30pm, but the pizza delivery for tea went down well as can be seen below!

 

LIME/CEMENT COURSE NEARLY FULL

Our new course ‘Theory and Practice of Lime and Cement Stabilisation’ is nearly fully booked!  It is running in Chesterfield on 30 April 2019 and has received wide industry attention, for example Britpave have added it to their diary of events here.
