Description

This one day training course will give you a clear understanding of design techniques, construction methods and contract procedures for specifying and designing piled foundations.

Specifying and designing pile foundations requires a basic understanding of geotechnical and structural design techniques, construction methods and contract procedures. This course, delivered by a tutor with both geotechnical and structural engineering knowledge, considers these aspects.  Worked examples and tutorials are included in the sessions.
