The Colorado Association of Geotechnical Engineers (CAGE) was established in 1995 by a small group of owners of geotechnical engineering firms in Colorado. This visionary group of founding members saw the need for a much greater exchange of technical and professional information between practicing geotechnical engineers, in an effort to advance the profession and to promote the public welfare.

Since CAGE was formed it has experienced steady and significant growth, with more than 120 current members from more than 60 different companies and organizations. Beyond the growth in the size of our membership, the organization has made great strides in promoting and improving the practice of geotechnical engineering in Colorado. CAGE’s contributions to the profession have included the hosting of regular luncheon meetings with guest speakers, sponsoring local geotechnical seminars, establishing committees to evaluate and respond to various geotechnical issues, issuing several publications, and developing Geotechnical Study Guidelines For Light Commercial and Residential Buildings in Colorado. In addition, CAGE has promoted collegial interactions between members and practitioners in related fields of geology, as well as civil and
structural engineering.

CTL|Thompson Founder Bob Thompson Receives ENR Mountain States Legacy Award
Posted Nov 1st, 2017
Engineering leader established engineering practices that paved the way for Colorado’s growth DENVER (Nov. 1, 2017) – CTL|Thompson founder Bob Thompson has been named as the 2017 recipient of the ENR Mountain States Legacy Award. CTL|Thompson is the largest full-service geotechnical, structural, environmental and materials engineering firm headquartered in Denver. Thompson was honored at the ENR Mountain States 2017 Best Projects breakfast on Oct. 25. The prestigious award recognizes an individual who has achieved a lifetime legacy of service in design and construction. Recipients have contributed above and beyond to the engineering profession and their communities. In his 55-year career, Thompson emerged as a national leader for devising engineering solutions to challenging slope stabilization and earth retention projects, especially in mountainous areas. He is also one of the foremost experts on expansive soil behavior and introduced technologies and testing that more effectively evaluated swell potential, prediction of heave, and mitigation techniques for building in expansive soil regions. Finally, Thompson has led the field on foundation design, mine remediation and anchor wall design for large excavations. His firm, CTL|Thompson, has provided geotechnical, structural and environmental expertise and materials testing on an estimated 100,000 residential and commercial building projects. “Bob’s work cast a long shadow on our industry, the Colorado community, and the individuals he mentored and taught,” said CTL|Thompson Vice President Marc Cleveland. “Most of our leadership team has stayed with the company for 20-plus years, because of the corporate culture created by Bob, the remarkable wisdom he has imparted and the many essential and exciting projects that his leadership attracted to the firm.” ENR Mountain States also recognized Thompson’s commitment to elevating engineering practices. Specifically, his work established standard practices for geotechnical firms across the U.S. In 1995, Thompson joined forces with like-minded colleagues to establish what became the Colorado Association of Geotechnical Engineers (CAGE). He also was Past President with ASFE (GBA) and served on a board charged with accreditation approval for college engineering schools at universities nationwide. CTL|Thompson now has nine offices throughout Colorado and Wyoming. It celebrated its 45th anniversary last year. About CTL|Thompson CTL|Thompson is a full-service geotechnical, structural, environmental and materials engineering firm. Established in 1971, the firm currently employs 230 technical and non-technical employees and provides expertise in small and large-scale projects in all areas of construction.
