Synopsis

Dr Privett's career as a consultant in the geotechnical, mining and geo-environmental sectors has spanned the 40+ years that engineering geology has been well established as a discipline in its own right. 

The past is the key to the future: a better understanding of site history leads to better predictions of engineering behaviour of the ground. Engineering geology is a multi-faceted discipline that is ever expanding and there are three interlocking themes that enhance the skills of an engineering geological consultant:

  1. working with multiple disciplines, being versatile and adaptable to change;
  2. possessing a wide range of knowledge and experience; and
  3. using lessons of the past

Dr Privett will illustrate through the use of a range of case histories how these themes can provide multiple lines of evidence which reduce uncertainty and provide better understanding of projects in engineering geology.

Venue

The Medal presentation and award lectures will be held at the Royal Institute Theatre, 21 Albermale Street, London W1S 4BS

The Reception will be held at the Geological Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BG
