Quality Control of reinforced concrete slabs and building Construction

Quality Control of reinforced  concrete slabs and building Construction

 

Objectives

 

This 5 days basic course aims at providing Inspection, Quality control, Quality assurance and Total quality management of reinforced concrete slabs, construction materials in construction projects, analysis and detailing. Different types & data for foundation design, concrete liquid retaining structures, proper selection of their types, tall buildings act.

The participants will be familiar with all quality management technique and procedure and the available non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structure project.

After attending the course you will Prepare QA/QC for site work and communicate well with project manager, construction manager, project engineers and site foreman.

 

  • Describe the quality program and organization to be implemented so that the project is constructed in accordance with the contract requirements and industry standards; Construction QC/QA Plan

 

  • Describe guidelines for inspection and documentation of construction activities;
  • Provide reasonable assurance that the completed work will meet or exceed the requirements of the construction drawings and specifications.

 

  • Describe how any unexpected changes or conditions that could affect the construction quality will be detected, documented, and addressed during construction.
