Catch up with us in Cairns!

We are excited – only three more sleeps until the start of the ANZ Geomechanics Conference in Cairns.


I am writing this email with two hats on:

  • Chair of the Ground Level Alliance
  • Business Development for Insitutek Pty Ltd
Launch gathering for AGS partnership with Ground Level Alliance


Are you interested in the contribution our profession and you directly can have delivering more sustainable outcomes in the civil construction industry?

The Ground Level Alliance is delighted to announce our support partnership with the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS).

We are a young organisation empowering and equipping civil construction professionals in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands to make sustainability a daily practice, like safety. We guide the way.

What’s distinctive?

  • Focused on taking action
  • Not re-inventing the wheel
  • Grass roots (by industry practitioners for our industry)
  • Local to the Pacific region
  • Voluntary and not driven by commercial interests
  • Focused on the front end of projects where you can have more impact

Why does the Ground Level Alliance exist?

Many in civil construction find it difficult to connect their work to addressing global environmental and sustainability issues. The Ground Level Alliance aims to bridge this gap by providing direction and guidance.

Fresh coffee will be on hand 🙂. We’d love to see you there. Let us know if you’ll be coming along.


Insitutek Exhibition Booth 4 – Insitu Testing Methods and Soil Stabilisation – AU, NZ & Pacific

We are very much looking forward to catching up with our existing contacts face to face and meeting new ones.

Come and chat to us about:

  1. Insitu testing equipment, helping you make better informed timely decisions and:
  2. Clay soil stabilisation, delivering sustainable long term ground improvement

Very much looking forward to see you there. Are you coming to the conference?

If your after sales service is anything like what I have already received, I think I definitely made the correct choice.

We have found the PANDA to be an invaluable acquisition to our company, using it on projects ranging from Remote Community Housing in Central Australia to a NASA Rocket Launch Facility in Arnhem Land, NT.

The ZFG 3000 is an excellent tool and should be included in any professional contractors equipment list of assets. This tool should have a similar impact on the construction industry as the laser level. The ability to accurately and reliably measure this aspect of ground condition will improve the quality of the work and remove doubt as to the progress of the project.

I bought my ZFG 3000 and on the same day less than two hours later, it had paid for itself. Using this instrument, I was able to demonstrate scientifically, repeatably and independently the quality of the work that we had completed for our client. Ending the disagreement and creating an improved working relationship. Most jobs are not as confrontational as this was however, most jobs are built to a standard. The contractor can now measure as required, to know on site, at the time of testing if this standard is being achieved.

I strongly recommend the ZFG 3000 Deflectometer to any earthmoving, civil construction contractor. Good luck with your projects.
