Author // Jessica Williams Categories // Geotechnical April 30, 2015 Views 5385

Throughout the year, the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) hosts many different short courses and conferences taught by experienced industry professionals who aim to educate owners, engineers, and contractors in specialty areas. These short courses provide concentrated instruction in areas such as Ground Improvement in Underground Construction and Mining and Grouting Fundamentals. These courses are intensive and provide comprehensive knowledge of the latest and greatest R&D. That’s why we choose to align with the CSM every year – because we believe that education is the way forward – and CSM has a reputation for impeccable education.

This May, Avanti’s Vice President of Sales, Britt Babcock, presents “Chemical Grouts” – a presentation on injection grouting to stop water, stabilize soil and rock strata and control groundwater in underground construction and mining. When asked why he attends CSM, Britt says “Having participated in the course for over five years, both as a student and instructor, I have learned new techniques and gained great understanding about grouting. The experts, with such vast knowledge and experience of grouting, collected in one place, is unparalleled to any other course. I recommend those at all levels of experience attend. I guarantee you will walk away with an experience far beyond your expectations!”

Britt Babcock will be presenting "Chemical Grouts" at 11:15 on Tuesday, May 19, 2015.
