WELCOME TO CAGE
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, and issuing several publications relevant to the geotechnical practice in Colorado. In addition, CAGE has promoted collegial interactions between members and practitioners in related fields of geology, civil and structural engineering.
CAGE promotes the geotechnical profession in all market sectors – residential and commercial construction, transportation, mining, water and wastewater, energy, dams, industrial development, etc. We host a monthly meeting which typically includes a presentation from a geotechnical lead representing one of the various market sectors relevant to practice in Colorado.
