Conference Summary

The intent of this conference is to explore the industry’s challenges presented by owners and owners' representatives (consultants/construction managers) who are associated with building the infrastructure systems that meet modern demands. Also, the event will be the forum for presentations from contractors, engineers, researchers and manufacturers (technology providers) on projects and studies related to new technologies, methods of construction, design concepts, equipment, materials and electronics in connection with the developing of Project Information Management System (PIMS) and the Building Information Modeling (BIM) applied to the geotechnical and foundation industry.

NOTE: There are several buildings at Sapienza University. This conference will be held at No. 18 via Eudossiana, near the Colosseum.

Reasons to Attend this Conference

  1. Share international experiences with worldwide experts.   

  2. Interact with practitioners specializing in cutting-edge technologies for deep foundations and ground improvement.
  3. Discuss and debate technical topics related to deep foundations and ground improvement, particularly critical infrastructure, soft soils, piling-related design, equipment and material advancements, modeling and computing for new techniques and monitoring practices.   

  4. Participate in risk-related discussions, including failures and lessons learned on case histories from the perspectives of owners, contractors and engineers and integrated risk management processes. 

  5. Hear about DFI and EFFC’s research initiatives aimed at advancing the state-of-practice of deep foundations and excavation support.   

  6. Explore the Exhibition Area featuring specialty services of participating companies.   

  7. Attend the pre-conference workshops on working platforms, continuous flight auger (CFA) and drilled displacement pile practices, and Tremie concrete research and guidance document updates.
