Peter Reading will be talking about the Chalk. After almost 50 years working in the geotechnical industry Peter will present some of his observations on this iconic stratum, providing an overview of the UK Chalk and its geotechnical properties. 

This presentation will look at the evolution of the chalk logging system, culminating in the seminal works of Rory Mortimer which finally unlocked the full Chalk stratigraphy. The talk will be punctuated by case histories which illustrate the perils awaiting the uninitiated developer.

Please arrive from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.
