The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) is the principal
association for geotechnical engineers in the United Kingdom.
Welcome to the British Geotechnical Association (BGA). We are the principal association for geotechnical engineers in the United Kingdom. We also perform the role of the Ground Board for the Institution of Civil Engineers, as well as being the UK member of the International Society for Soil Mechanics & Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and the International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM).
The ECG is fortunate to have a free CPD day on Cone Penetration testing and Geophysics, kindly facilitated by Fugro at Fugro House in Wallingford. Join us for a day to learn about the principles of cone penetration testing (CPT), application of CPT and an introduction to geophysics. Lunch and coffee provided by Fugro.
