WDP Attends GeoVirginia 2022 Conference
WDP's Associate Principal and Testing & Inspections Division Manager, Rob Niber, P.E., attended the GeoVirginia 2022 conference April 10 through 13 in Smithfield, Virginia. It was an awesome gathering of geo-professionals including geotechnical engineers, geologists, and geotechnical specialty contractors and vendors enjoying 2 days of lectures, good food, networking and comradery. Rob was named in the last lecture presentation regarding reducing uncertainty in geotechnical design that used the WMATA White Flint Station parking garage project as a case study. Rob worked on this project with Roger Failmezger (In-Situ Soil Testing) who assisted WDP by performing dilatometer soundings that saved WDP’s client over $500,000 by eliminating deep foundations for a shallow foundation system. GeoVirginia will meet again in Smithfield, VA in the Fall of 2023.
