The technical committees of DFI and ADSC will combine their industry expertise to organize SuperPile ‘17. This three-day conference will include presentations on the latest developments in Driven Piles, Augered Cast-in-Place/Drilled Displacement Piles, Micropiles, Marine Foundations, Testing and Evaluation of Foundation Systems, Seismic and Lateral Loads, Drilled Shafts, Ground Improvement and Helical Piles and Tiebacks. Presentations also will highlight best practices for project safety from design through construction as well as topics relevant to the Southern California area.

On Wednesday, June 14, DFI committees will meet in the afternoon to discuss progress on various committee projects. The Women in Deep Foundations Committee will host a not-to-be-missed networking on the Marina Terrace at the Loews overlooking the Crown Isle Marina.

On Thursday, June 15, there will be a plenary (combined) session of presentations on a variety of technical topics.

Three parallel sessions on Friday, June 16, will provide attendees the option to choose presentations of interest, including a track on Safety planned by ADSC. Invited and selected presentations will highlight advancements, innovations and challenges in design and construction of deep foundations, particularly related to piling solutions and safety practices. Presentations local to the San Diego-metropolitan area, along with national, and international case histories, are encouraged. Equipment, material and instrumentation suppliers, contractors, engineers, and other vendors will present their services in our Exhibit Hall.
