DELFT GEOTECHNICS, the Dutch research and consulting institute for geotechnology and the environment, has changed its name to GeoDelft.
The company says the geotechnics name no longer adequately covers the scope of work and experience needed when building with, on, or beneath the soil. The name change is also said to reflect an increase in international co-operation.
The company previously traded domestically as Grondmechanica Delft, with its two subsidiaries in England and Ireland operating as DG Environmental.
GeoDelft is holding an open day on 11 June, following the European soil mechanics conference in Amsterdam. For information e-mail S.terKuile@ delftgeot.nl
