Alliances

To be sure DFI members have access to the broadest and most current information, knowledge and events, we have formed alliances with several organizations.

ADSC: The International Association of Foundation Drilling
The International Association of Foundation Drilling (ADSC), is a professional, international association. The membership represents those who work in the foundation drilling industry and related heavy civil construction/design industries, and includes companies that perform work as specialty subcontractors, manufacturers, suppliers, academicians and engineers in both the private and public sector.

CGS: The Canadian Geotechnical Society
The Canadian Geotechnical Society is the premier organization for geotechnical engineers and geoscientists in Canada and is dedicated to advancing knowledge and creating opportunities for the sharing of information by practitioners in a broad range of geotechnical disciplines.

Geo-Coalition
Geo-Coalition creates a sense of Geo-community through the encouragement of communication, cooperation and collaboration among its members as products and events are publicized and promoted. The group identifies opportunities for members to endorse common positions and provide a powerful common voice to influence the geo-future.

ISM: The International Society for Micropiles
The International Society for Micropiles (ISM) is a consortium of international representatives involved in the design, construction, research/development and instruction/promotion of micropile technology.

PDCA: Pile Driving Contractors Association
The Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA) is an organization of pile driving contractors that advocates the increased use of driven piles for deep foundations and earth retention systems.

USUCGER: United States Universities Council on Geotechnical Education and Research
The United States Universities Council on Geotechnical Education and Research (USUCGER) was founded in 1985 to provide advocacy for the continued development and expansion of high quality geotechnical engineering research and education by US academic institutions. This discipline has evolved to include geotechnical, geomechanical, geoenvironmental, geological, and geophysical engineering.
