Hallaton Receives 2017 IAGI Innovative Project Award

Hallaton is the proud recipient of the prestigious 2017 IAGI Innovative Project Award. Our work at the Pearce Creek Dredge Disposal Facility was showcased as being among the best in Geosynthetics Installation.

“The IAGI Installation Awards recognize those IAGI members who make significant contributions to the field of geosynthetics installation. So often the installer gets forgotten in the discussion of a project,” commented Laurie Honnigford, managing director of IAGI. “In reality a project is a set of plans on a piece of paper until the installer gets involved. The installer can make or break a project and we need to recognize those who improve and advance our industry.” Continue reading
