Dr. Erwin Calo and Engr. Pearly Lalangan were among the Filipino delegates to the GeoStructures Asia: Tackling Geotechnical and Strategic Challenges Involved in Project Delivery at the Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore last October 15-17. Organized by Trueventus, the event drew more than 20 professionals from various Southeast Asian countries. Geotechnical engineers and lawyers from academic institutions (Technische Universitat Darmstadt in Germany and the National University of Singapore) and multi-national companies (GHD, Coffey, Arup, CH2M HILL, AECOM, Deltares among others) shared their actual project experiences through discussions on the current technical challenges in ground improvement.
The conference focused on four general subject matters: Ground Instability and Landslide, Observational Method, Geo-Risk Management, and Geotechnical Baseline Report. Several takeaways from the Conference were shared by Dr. Calo during an echo session before selected First Balfour employees last December 15.
