We have been busy in March and April delivering our part of the NHBC Building for Tomorrow 2017 roadshow. “Ground Investigation Good Practice” was the subject of our contribution. It was great meeting so many people and cascading the news on the GI changes coming due to EC7 and BS5930:2015.
Photographed below are Andy Goodwin of Surepath and James Regan of Geo Matters on completion of their extended tour of the UK.
If you wish to learn more about the impact of EC7 on GI's then our half day course on 4 May is an excellent way to understand the key changes - please contact us for more information.

Technical Report Writing Course Running Again in May 2017
Following several expressions of interest, we are pleased to announce that we are shortly re-running our technical report writing course. It is ideal for those wishing to develop their reporting skills and / or who are about to start writing their Professional Report for their ICE Professional Review. It has received excellent feedback previously and is delivered via two late afternoon / early evening workshops to minimise the impact on the working day.
The course covers a breadth of topics including report styles, writing for impact, planning and sorting content, and structuring reports. In addition several practical sessions on the good use of English to improve clarity and readability will be included, and delegates receive feedback on their written work.
The precise dates and times are yet to be determined but we wanted to get this out to everyone as soon as possible. Please contact us asap if you and / or your colleagues would be interested in joining us for this course.
MORE BESPOKE MOCK INTERVIEW COURSES COMMISSIONED
We have been commissioned once again by a large consultancy to run several mock interview courses for graduates pursuing professional qualification in the Autumn review sessions with the ICE. Each day-course will run in various centres across the UK. The course involves the candidates submitting their draft Professional Report in advance, based on which the candidates undergo a mock review and then receive individual feedback on their report and their interview.
If you have a group of people needing training in this or any other skill area then please contact us to discuss how we may be able to design a course to suit your needs and add value to your service provision.
