DANIEL ROSS REPRESENTS LDG AT PDI SEMINAR
LDG’s Daniel Ross, Testing Technician, attended the annual Pile Dynamic Inc (PDI) seminar at PDI/GRL headquarters in Solon, Cleveland, Ohio.
Pile Dynamics, Inc. is the largest manufacturer of foundation dynamic testing equipment in the world. Its team of civil engineers, electronic engineers, software developers and technicians are constantly developing new products for the deep foundation industry, ensuring the company consistently excels in product quality and customer support. PDI products improve the quality assurance of deep foundations on sites in over 100 countries throughout the world.
Daniel attended a three-day seminar which focused on Deep Foundation Integrity Testing, Wave Equation Analysis and High Strain Dynamic Foundation Testing. His attendance was part of Daniel’s on-going professional development, enabling him to better understand and utilise PDI equipment LDG employs on sites across Ireland and the UK.
Daniel was joined at the seminar by more than thirty fellow engineers from around the world, giving him invaluable insight into the various perspectives and approaches employed in carrying out testing.
Daniel commented “This was my first visit to the PDI headquarters in Ohio and I was very impressed with their expertise and the passion they have for deep foundation testing. I can now capably analyse data under supervision and I feel I could not have made this step without the knowledge gained. An additional bonus was the opportunity to meet fellow professionals and to get a different perspective on how they carry out testing.”
LDG chooses PDI products and technical support for their quality, reliability, accuracy and durability, and LDG clients ultimately benefit from the company’s continued research, innovation and superior customer care.
