As a family owned company, we have been graced by Dr. Tom Iseley & his associates with the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech. The Trenchless Technology Center will be honoring the family name of Jim and Leo Barbera with their new state of the art facility called the Barbera Underground Infrastructure Research and Training Facility (BUIRT). At the inauguration of this new facility, Jim and Leo Barbera will both be honored with lifetime achievement awards for their contributions to the boring industry. This new facility will be a huge leap in the research and education side of our industry. For more information or how to get involved, please contact Dr. Tom Iseley (Director) or Saleh Behbahani (Coordinator) of the auger boring school via the contact information on the flyer above.
