Big Bang North West 2019: Geotechnics – What are GeoScientists & Geospatial Engineers?
What are GeoScientists & Geospatial Engineers? Come and visit Geotechnics, Lankelma, Geoterra and ICES to discover the work of modern GeoScientists & Geospatial Engineers and the role they play in today’s world.
“We’re a group of companies very used to working with one another to deliver different elements of investigation, both below and above ground. As ground investigators we’ll be on hand to explain how and why we drill the ground for soil and rock samples, how we obtain data to inform geotechnical and geoenvironmental design and analysis, and today’s methods of reporting.
As Geospatial Engineers we’ll be able to show you how we survey what lies beneath the ground and what lies above it. Displays will include a real rotary drilling rig, a CPT drill truck, laser scanners, Drones, Robot mini survey buggies, visualisations of 3D computer modelling, and virtual reality interaction, and there’ll be the chance to get hands-on with some soil, rock and maybe some fossils…
We’ll have lots of posters, stickers and pens for you to take away for you to remember your day at Big Bang North West!!”
“Climb aboard Lankelma’s investigation truck to discover how, by simply pushing a steel cone into the ground, we can find unexploded bombs, spot contamination and even get live video from the depths, to see exactly what is going on beneath our feet. You will also find out how this information helps engineers design and build new buildings and infrastructure and helps plan the clean-up of manmade pollution in soils and groundwater.”
The Big Bang North West 2019 is going to be our BIGGEST & best event to date!
