BMC Training provides on 21 Oct 2018 Building Preventive Maintenance course [Construction and Civil Engineering Training] in Bali,Indonesia

Course Description

This course is planned to answer technical questions frequently asked by the experienced engineer and executive. It includes information about the significance of applicable codes and standards, critical characteristics of a given structure, critical loads, load combinations and load effects, types and causes of common deficiencies of structures, workable preventive measures for the decay and deterioration of structures, and the use of innovative technology and new materials.

Course Objective 

  • To understand the philosophy and significance of codes and standards
  • To learn about the uncertainty associated with loads and load effects
  • To understand the causes and mechanisms leading to deficient structures
  • To workout preventive measures to counteract deterioration of structures
  • To plan effective maintenance programs
  • To understand the nature of innovative technology and new materials
  • To learn about specific needs and requirements for concrete, steel and other structures
  • To comprehend the role of the designer, the contractor and the supervision in producing sound structures
  • To provide an overview for the role of effective management
  • To learn from past lessons
  • To learn from historical structures that stood the test of time

Who Should attend?

This course is designed to meet the needs primarily of executive managers, working in the area of civil engineering construction, and facing the challenges of maintaining and preserving good, sound buildings. It is also useful for structural engineers, quality assurance experts, construction and supervision engineers, owners and mangers of constructed facilities.

It is expected that a number of the attendees will find the information beneficial and a useful addition to their reference library even though they are not directly practicing in the field.

Engineers involved in design, supervision, construction or planning will find many direct links with their practice and requirements and can put the information provided to use immediately.
