Welcome to our world

This edition of Ground Engineering has a different emphasis from our typical monthly issues. Its normal print run has been almost tripled so that a copy can be distributed to every visitor at the Civils2000 exhibition in Birmingham at the end of the month. We identified the prospect of reaching up to 8000 new readers as a great opportunity to showcase the UK geotechnical industry. For this reason the features content is much broader than usual - you will find articles outlining the shape and format of the industry, as well as pieces on key issues such as how the geotechnical sector is changing to meet the needs of the construction and building process in the wake of Egan and Latham. For our new readers the message is: involve geotechnical expertise early in the project, it can make a big difference. The section concludes with a preview of geotechnical activities at Civils.
