IAGI Installation Awards Entries Solicited
Four years ago the IAGI Board set up the IAGI Installation Awards program. Excellent projects have been submitted the past two cycles and IAGI is looking forward to getting a wide range of projects. Only open to member installed projects, the awards help installers raise their profile on their vital role in engineering and construction. For waste management, mining, environmental protection and other applications, the experience and quality of geosynthetic installers has an enormous impact on whether designs are executed properly and installations begin their service lives in optimal condition.
The biennial IAGI Installation Awards program is soliciting entries for the Geotechnical Frontiers conference, March 12 -1 5, 2016 in Orlando, FL. Applicants must provide an application (see below), a description of the project and a minimum of 5 photos that tell the story of the installation.
IAGI honors those members who install extreme projects, innovative projects and specialized small projects.The following links will provide detailed information on this program.
The deadline for entry submission is 31 January 2017.
The winners of the awards will be announced during the Geotechnical Frontiers conference in Orlando, FL. If you have questions about this program, contact Laurie Honnigford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
