Meet Keynote Speaker Ken Foster, President of Instituform Technologies Limited
Jul 17, 2015
The keynote speaker for the 2015 Trenchless Technology Road Show will be Ken Foster, President of Instituform Technologies Limited. This show will consist of two full days of technical presentations and exhibits bringing you the latest advances in trenchless technology. Topics covered include methods and materials for planning, design, installation, assessment and management of water and wastewater systems.
Ken Foster graduated from the University of Liverpool with a First Class Honours degree in Civil Engineering. He worked for two municipalities in England for five years, and then in the early 1970’s immigrated to Edmonton, Canada. There, Ken worked as a Consulting Engineer initially heading the GCG Partnership and then GCG Dillon Consulting Ltd. In 1986, while working on an Infrastructure Rehabilitation project for the City of Edmonton, he subcontracted WRc to be their specialist consultant for the underground infrastructure evaluations and this was the first work that WRc was ever involved with in Canada.
In 1988, Ken joined Insituform Canada and has since then led the Insituform Operations throughout Canada. During this time he was involved in projects from Vancouver Island to Labrador, while Insituform grew and now operates in four Canadian cities, installing over 120 km of CIPP liners annually. Between 2011 and 2013 Ken was also responsible for Insituform’s operations in the Western US. Currently, in addition to his responsibilities in Canada, he is Managing Director of Insituform’s operations in Europe.
Ken is a founding member of the North American Society for Trenchless Technology, and holds Professional Engineering Licenses in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario. His knowledgeable reputation among the industry will bring a propelling perspective to all who attend the conference.
