To be sure DFI members have access to the broadest and most current information, knowledge and events, we have formed alliances with several related organizations.
Deep Mixing Conference Series
A consortium of practitioners who organize and present conferences on deep mixing, which provide significant technical contributions to the advancement of the understanding, use and performance of deep mixing internationally. The organizers are a group of international representatives dedicated to providing a forum for discussion and progress in the deep mixing industry. The conferences contain a wealth of knowledge and archive the evolution of the understanding of material properties, new technologies, research, mix designs, and quality control and assurance for wet and dry deep mixing methods. While this consortium does not have a formal association, it has managed and produced the last two of the seven conferences in the Deep Mixing series (2015 and 2021).
EFFC: European Federation of Foundation Contractors
The European Federation of Foundation Contractors works to promote the common interests of its members by improving the standard of workmanship, technical competence, safety and innovation for specialist foundation contractors across Europe.
DFI and EFFC collaborate on areas of mutual interest through task and working groups related to concrete mixes, support fluids, working platforms and sustainability.
The GeoCoalition is an informal association of professional organizations representing the geotechnical design and construction community formed to encourage communication, cooperation and collaboration among its members. The group comes together once each year to share insights, calendars, and plans for professional activities and to discuss issues of common interest to the constituent organizations. The group identifies opportunities for members to endorse common positions and provide a powerful common voice to influence the geo-future.
