‘Complete field guide’ released in February
The Complete Field Guide to Ensuring Quality Geosynthetics Installations by Glen Toepfer, president of Toledo, Ohio-based CQA Solutions, was unveiled last month at the Geosynthetics 2015 conference in Portland, Ore.
Subtitled Volume 1: Fundamentals & Geomembranes, this 369-page book reveals the inner workings of geomembrane installations to unparalleled depths. The book is a roadmap for navigating the relationships between the rigors of field installations and other external influences. Each of the 14 chapters balances quality and cost concerns for delivering an installation that provides a solid return on investment for owners.
A “work along project” is included at the end of each chapter-walking readers through documentation and review processes for every phase of a geomembrane installation.
Toepfer also offers:
- proactive systems that identify potential pitfalls, shortcuts, and safeguards.
- content that is written for seasoned industry veterans as well as newcomers to the geosynthetics industry.
- true stories that are both educational and entertaining.
The list price is $168.
