Getting the Message Across
Applying Building Information Modelling principles to geotechnical data will reinforce the message that geotechnics is an integral part of every phase of a project – not just site investigation, argues Gary Morin, Technical Director, Keynetix.
[Editor] In this contributed article, Gary describes the justification for using BIM for geotechnical data. Among those benefits are the ability to perform detailed alternatives analysis and optioneering, reduction of risk during construction, and the ability to perform cost-effective repairs and maintenance during the lifetime of the geotechnical asset.

Its great to see this posted on your website. At Terracon we are serious about bringing a stronger understanding of the incredible need for thorough and proper Geotechnical Site Characterization for any geotechnical or foundation project.
This video exposes the tremendous value of “looking into the past”, and recycling our data. As we have examined the possibilities of this, we have become quite excited about the possibilities. (stay tuned!)
