BEM Approved 7 CPD Hours (IEM14/PP/017/W) Normal Price RM 580.00
(If 3 or more RM 290.00 per person Only)
Introduction
Pile foundations are very common nowadays for high-rise buildings & heavy structures. Reliability & performance of pile foundations depend crucially on how they are constructed. Proper site supervision to ensure pile foundations are properly constructed according to design & specification is a mandatory requirement by codes of practice. BS 8004 stipulates that “A competent person, properly qualified and experienced, should be appointed to supervise the piling operations. This person should be capable of recognizing and assessing any potential dangers as they arise, e.g. unexpected ground conditions that may require a change in construction technique, or unusual smells which may indicate the presence of noxious or dangerous gases”. This one day course is designed to impart the necessary knowledge & guidance to carry out proper site supervision for various common types of pile foundation works to meet the requirements of code of practice. More than 200 slides & elaborated course notes will be presented & given.
