The ACEI Awards proved to be both an enjoyable and rewarding evening for the GDG team last Friday.

We were delighted to win the Innovation Award for Design Excellence on our recent Gothenburg project involving accurate prediction of soil movements in very soft clays during extensive piling works to support a high profile new development.

The geotechnical experts at GDG worked in close collaboration with our Swedish partners Sigma Civil to develop a novel numerical modelling approach to calculate the combined soil-structure response on the adjacent Substructures surrounding the site.

We look forward to future challenges on upcoming projects where we can apply these methods to optimise the foundations. Well done to all involved.
