Welcome to the British Geotechnical Association (BGA). We are the principal association for geotechnical engineers in the United Kingdom. We also perform the role of the Ground Board for the Institution of Civil Engineers, as well as being the UK member of the International Society for Soil Mechanics & Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and the International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM).
The BGA Annual Dinner is a new addition to BGA’s annual calendar of events. This prestigious occasion will bring together the geotechnical community for an evening of fine food, socializing and networking. The inaugural BGA Annual Dinner will also include a lecture by Professors John Burland and Jamie Standing on the underpinning of Winchester Cathedral. The lecture will only be open to those attending the dinner.
