Contractors, developers, property owners, and engineers will soon congregate for a conference to discuss how to overcome challenges encountered on Ontario’s ever-shrinking development sites. Hosted by GeoSolv Design/Build Inc. and Geopier, the event will take place on March 27th at Brampton's Pearson Convention Centre.

Sponsored by UrbanToronto, the Geo2018 Conference: Developing Challenging Sites will offer talks from many industry experts, covering all aspects of land development, including ground improvement, how to scope site investigations, getting projects out of the ground, due diligence, and how challenging soil conditions can affect the design of structures. An expert panel discussion facilitated by UrbanToronto will conclude what is sure to be an insightful and informative day of networking, learning and expert discussions.
