Construction and Building Envelope Inspection
Who should attend?

The course will be of particular interest to engineers employed in the field of Construction and Civil Engineering This training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Civil Engineers
  • Architects
  • Practising building construction inspectors
  • Project engineers
5 Days
Programme Overview
This course will help you to know and understand the types of inspection and testing involved in a construction project, which for the most part are mandatory to assure the quality of materials used as well as the workmanship. Further, this course will provide guidance and recommendations for design and inspection consideration in an effort to provide a long-lasting exterior building envelope system.
To familiarize participants with testing and inspection techniques of engineering materials and workmanship in building construction.
This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and interactive worked examples included in several workshops. Presented also will be several illustrative and instructive videos. The emphasis in the seminar will be on the explanation of all technical points and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice related to operation and maintenance, as well as repair and alterations of industrial heating equipment.
