This one day training course considers common design challenges and identifies the key engineering questions, developing methodologies to ensure you get the right information, make the right design decisions and produce effective and efficient engineering solutions across your projects.
Taking a pragmatic approach, supported by the lessons learnt from real-life case studies, this training course answers the queries most pertinent to the non-geotechnical specialist:
- What are the most common causes of error, dispute and delay in geotechnical design?
- How to ensure you get the design data you need.
- What does site investigation data tell us and not tell us?
- When to use a geotechnical specialist.
This training course has been carefully developed to provide clarity and confidence to civil and structural engineers when making geotechnical decisions. It gives clear guidance on getting good geotechnical data appropriate to your design, understanding the balance between risk, cost and certainty and how to avoid the most common causes of time and cost overruns on your projects.
