The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) is the principal
association for geotechnical engineers in the United Kingdom.
The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) with support from the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) hosted a major international conference on Piling as an on-line event in 2021.
There had not been a conference related specifically to piling for a number of years but recently there have been many technical developments in the field related to offshore and onshore projects namely the development of offshore wind farms and major infrastructure projects.
With the amount of work currently underway, it is appropriate to focus on this topic and to bring together the knowledge and experience gained in recent years. The conference had input from researchers and practitioners with the aim of sharing their experiences to develop new and novel solutions.
