PHASE I. STUDY OF DRAWINGS AND PLAN (0+2+0) 25 Hours
Concise, accurate, and legible engineering notes are necessary to document planning, design, and construction. They provide the basis for the expenditure of Federal and other funds for conservation installations.
- To ensure the student read about the technical terms in various building drawings.
- To give hands-on practice to the students in preparing blueprints of proposed construction.
- Review of policy and guidance for proper note keeping and surveying procedure
- Understand proper note-keeping requirements
- Understand the different types of surveys and the requirements for each of them
- Understand layout and checkout procedures for different conservation practices
PHASE II. Project Scheduling &Management (2+1+0) 30 Hours
Scheduling in project management is the listing of activities, deliverables, and milestones within a project. A schedule also usually includes a planned start and finish date, duration, and resources assigned to each activity. Effective project scheduling is a critical component of successful time management.
When people discuss the processes for building a schedule, they are usually referring to the first six processes of time management:
- Plan schedule management
- Define project activities
- Sequence activities
- Estimate resources
- Estimate durations
- Develop the project schedule
PHASE Ill. Quantity Estimation and Equipment Management (0+1+1)25 Hours
As the term suggests, quantity estimation is literally estimating the quantity of the physical materials/type of materials needed for that project. Professional quantity estimators draft the desired quantity required.
Estimating tools help estimators (usually for subcontractors and contractors) create the line-by-line cost and quantity estimates for materials and supplies. Generally, these tools include cost summary templates, preconfigured formulas and calculations, and regional part/material cost databases. Sometimes estimating software can provide products that cover all three – bidding, takeoff, and estimating, under one roof.
After completion of the course student will be able to:
- Understand the importance of units of measurement and preliminary estimates for administrative approval of projects.
- Understand the contracts and tender documents in construction projects.
- Analyze and assess the number of materials required for civil engineering works as per specifications.
- Evaluate and estimate the cost of expenditure and prepare a detailed rate analysis report.
- Analyze and choose cost-effective approach for civil engineering projects
PHASE IV Site Study and Study on Contract Laws (2+1+0) 30 Hours
The contractor has the contractual responsibilities to control construction quality and inspect the work. These are two distinct processes. Control is a continual system of planning future activities. Inspection is the process by which ongoing and completed work is examined. Inspection is ongoing or "after-the-fact" while control is "preventive."
The objectives of control are to ensure that the contractor is adequately prepared to begin a phase of work, eliminate deficiencies, and to follow through in accomplishing the work in accordance with the contract. The objective of the inspection is to ensure that the work was accomplished in accordance with contract provisions. The control process is sometimes neglected. This course will emphasize the control aspects of the contractor’s management system.
- To learn about the methods of marking layouts and the pre-construction process.
- To study the various types of construction contracts and their legal aspects and provisions.
- State the contractor's responsibilities for reviewing contract plans.
- Describe the benefit of proper layout drawings.
- State the importance of requesting clarifications from the Government.
- Discuss the need for review of design extensions, designs for design build.
- projects, and designs for value engineering change proposals.
PHASE V. Concepts of Quality Control and Checking (0+1+1) 25 Hours
CQM is the performance of tasks, which ensure that construction is performed according to plans and specifications, on time, within a defined budget, and a safe work environment. For purposes of this training, quality is defined as conformance to properly developed requirements. For a construction project, quality begins with requirements carefully developed, reviewed for adherence to existing guidance, and ultimately reflected in criteria and design documents which accurately address these needs. Therefore, the designer establishes the quality standards and the contractor, in building to the quality standards in the plans and specifications, controls the quality of the work.
- To ensure that a project is installed at the location and to the dimensions and grades using the construction materials specified in the plan.
- To verify work complies with the contract requirements or minimum (eFOTG) standards.
- Required for completion certification.
- Making sure that the results of what you have done are what you expected.
- Is the follow-through to ensure the expectations and objectives of the construction activity are met.
- Identify the components of a QA Plan.
- Define the Quality Control (QC) Plan.
- Identify the components of the QC Plan.
PHASE VI. Site Supervision Project (0+0+4) 54 Hours
To demonstrate supervision of concreting task such as form finish concrete structure, complex structure, slip fc concreting and concreting in extreme weather condition. Supervise, monitor and evaluate performance of subordinates at workplace. To study about the processes of various stages of construction on the field.
