Geosynthetics 4 Success

July 26, 2010

Networking during lunch break of Geosynthetics 4 Success Seminar

Terra-Petra went up to Walnut Creek in force to attend the Geosynthetics 4 Success seminar sponsored by GSE last week.  For those who don’t know, GSE manufactures the largest selection of geosynthetic liners on the market today and they put on a very informative seminar.

We were impressed with Dr. Robert M. Koerner, a professor at Drexel Institute of Technology in Pennsylvania and author of Designing with Geosynthetics.  Dr. Koerner spoke on Advances and Concerns in Geosynthetic Material— his presentation was actually very entertaining.  Who knew someone could be so excited about HDPE Liners?

Attending the GSE seminar also gave us a chance to spend some valuable face to face time with employees from a very reputable engineering firm that we have had the pleasure to work with in the past, but hadn’t met in person. A group of us went out to a very nice dinner in Sausalito (seminar was held in the SF Bay Area)–we had a great time (what a beautiful area).  Great food, great conversation and great people. I hope we can get to work together on more projects in the future with this firm.
