Welcome to the homepage of the IGS UK Chapter

We are dedicated to the scientific and engineering development of geotextiles, geomembranes, related products and associated technologies.

Comments are welcomed by the Committee.
I am delighted to see the new IGS UK Chapter website up and running. I hope that this will provide IGS members in the UK all the up-to-date information on Chapter activities as well as information from further afield. The website has certainly come a long way from the one that I put together in 2004!
-Dr. Russell Jones, Current IGS President and Past IGS UK Chairman

The IGS UK website is THE comprehensive place for all your geosynthetic U.K. needs.

The aims of the IGS U.K. chapter are to collect and distribute knowledge about geosynthetics & their applications by facilitating conferences, symposiums, evening presentations & research in order to promote the advancement of the state of the art of geosynthetics & to improve the communication and understanding of geosynthetic products between designers, manufacturers and users of the products.
