September 10-11, 2024

The Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA) is pleased to announce the 25th Annual Design and Installation of Cost-Efficient Piles (DICEP) Conference scheduled for September 10-11, 2024, in Chicago, Illinois. The DICEP conference has a focus on Deep Foundations, Earth Retention, and the Benefits of the Driven Pile and this year's theme is "Driven Pile Mega Projects".

Held each fall since 2000, this exclusive PDCA program presents modern approaches to maximize and promote the increased use of driven piles through a series of engineering-focused presentations. The conference will take a deep dive into tried-and-true methods, as well as emerging techniques, for innovative design, construction, and equipment use related to deep foundations, earth retention and/or pile driving. Attendees will learn the advantages of using driven pile foundations for various types of projects; included will be insights into current industry research and technology. 

The conference is primarily designed for geotechnical, structural, and civil engineers. However, other firms or individuals who conduct business, support or are associated with the deep foundations, earth retention and/or the driven pile industry are also encouraged to attend. Licensed PEs will earn professional development hours (PDHs) by attending this conference.
