This technical workshop is designed to provide insights into deep foundation construction and design. The workshop is comprised of keynote presentations by a distinguished international deep foundation expert and local case studies by professionals in Ontario’s deep foundation industry. The workshop highlights the importance of new construction techniques and design methodologies. It will provide participants with a concise understanding of construction techniques and challenges of drilled shafts, continuous flight auger piles, slurry walls, and application of drilled shaft in earth retaining structures. Some risk components that must be considered in the planning, design, and construction of foundations for complex transportation infrastructure and building projects will be discussed.
