Kick-off Breakfast Including Welcome Address, Keynote Speakers, and Awarding the Projects of the Year

Keynote Presentations

Trenchless technology is a thriving market in North America and around the world.  Rapid growth brings many business opportunities as well as a diverse set of challenges to adapt to ever evolving market conditions.  Mr. Firsching will discuss the business and market implications associated with the expanding trenchless market, and what will be required for market participants to position themselves for success in the years to come.
  
The Horizontal Directional Drilling market is soaring with hundred of new pipelines installed daily for the municipal and gas industries.  The abundance of work keeps designers, contractors, and construction managers very busy to maintain pace with this rapidly moving industry.  However, with rapid growth comes growing pains.  We are observing an industry demand that is outpacing the expertise of designers and contractors.  As a result, the industry is realizing a high number of construction claims that have the potential to hurt every aspect of the trenchless industry and ultimately slowing industry growth.  Dr. Staheli will be discussing the trends in the industry and how we can work as a community to enhance positive growth in HDD and other trenchless applicaitons.
