On the beers at Geotechnica

Posted on 22nd July 2022

Soils Limited were out in force at this year’s combined Geotechnica and AGS – Association of Geotechnical & Geoenvironmental Specialists Conference in Warwickshire at the start of July, with 25 of our team attending across the two days.

It’s always a great chance to catch up and get your finger on the pulse and this year was no different. The pace of change in our small industry has accelerated in recent years, with technology broadening our horizons and reaching further into every task we perform. The mood on the floor was buoyant, a promising first half of the year showing that the construction industry was standing strong despite some economic headwinds.

This year was the first time we had a stand so we thought…let’s make the most of it! We brought with us 150 bottles of our finest brew, Drillers’ Best, our anniversary beer brewed with Red Cat Brewery in Winchester. And to really make it really fun, all of the beers could be won by “spinning the wheel”.

Despite a few ‘generous’ interpretations of the rules, our supply survived until 3pm on the final day, where we handed our 150th and final to the MD of Equipe Group, and show organiser, Julian Lovell.

 Cheers to next year and, to those of you who’ve still not cracked open your Drillers’ Best, we’d love to see a photo and stoke some friendly rivalry on the most (or least) glamorous locations you’re enjoying it.
