INTRODUCTION

Contract Management being one of the vital components in any Project needs adequate attention. Because of the involvement of several stake holders, different types of contracts and conditions have made this task more complex. The projects are being subjected to time and cost overruns because of continuous issues and disputes arising in the projects. Courts are flooded with cases and it is taking a long time to settle these disputes. Disputes lead to enormous loss to the entrepreneurs as well as the clients. In this scenario, it is necessary to understand, minimize and resolve these disputes. Proper Contract Documentation and Management reduce the burden of claims. World Bank Conditions, FIDIC and other forms of Contracts have been levying penalties for delay in completion and paying Bonus for early completions. Project Management is invariably taking all steps for effective Contract Management. The old forms of contracts are getting replaced with modern formats such as Build Own Transfer Family Contracts, Turnkey Contracts, EPC Contracts, Build and Design etc. The practicing professionals shall be familiar with the new mechanisms / techniques, so as to manage projects in the present scenario. It is in this context, ESCI is organizing 5-day training programme on “Contract Management & Dispute Resolution in Engineering Projects”.

INTRODUCTION

Around 110 million tones of fly ash get accumulated every year at the thermal power stations in India.
Internationally fly ash is considered as a byproduct which can be used for many applications. Fly Ash
Mission was initiated in 1994 to promote gainful and environment friendly utilization of the material. One
of the areas identified for its bulk utilization was in construction of roads and embankments. Fly ash
utilization in the country rose from 3 per cent (of 40 million tons) of fly ash produced annually in 1990s
to about 32 per cent (of 110 million tones) of fly ash generated annually now.
Fly ash is an excellent resource material for construction industry. Fly ash utilization helps conserve
natural resources like clay, lime stone required for making cement thus saving environment. Fly ash is
an excellent fill material for road/rail embankment. Fly ash is suitable for reclamation of both open cast
and underground mines. De-coaled area can be reclaimed for agriculture/floriculture/a-forestation. Less
requirement of land for fly ash pond. Fly ash has pozzolanic properties and used in the production of
Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), therefore “Environment Friendly”:
This course introduces properties and use of Fly Ash in Civil Engineering Works and discusses various
issues related to Fly Ash which will be beneficial to the users of Fly Ash.
Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view the above requirements, is privileged to
announce a programme on “Use of Fly Ash in Civil Engineering Works” from 23 – 25 May, 2017.

INTRODUCTION:

“Project management is the process of the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements”. That is, project management is an interrelated group of processes that enables the project team to achieve a successful project. These processes manage inputs to and produce outputs from specific activities; the progression from input to output forms the nucleus of project management and requires integration and interaction. According to the Indian standard IS/ISO 10006:2003, is a “unique process, consisting of a set of coordinated and controlled activities with start and finish dates, undertaken to achieve an objective conforming to specific requirements, including the constraints of time, cost and resources”. Project Management consists of “Planning, Organizing, Monitoring, Controlling and Reporting of all aspects of a project and the motivation of all those involved in it to achieve the project objectives”. Monitoring involves gathering data, obtaining information during implementation of a project and using that information during implementation of objectives and take timely due decisions and corrective actions to ensure that progress and discipline are maintained according to pre-determined estimated schedule and completion is achieved within given resources, cost and time limits. Many projects suffer from variances between planned schedules, allocated budgets and actual implementation outcomes. Absence of valid and reliable base line data makes it extremely difficult to evaluate the impact of any project. Only verifiable indicators can facilitate the success of a project. To address and rectify such problems, Project directors / Managers must have accurate and timely information about the real progress of their projects so that necessary decision can be made in time to correct deviations and variances. This training programme develops participant skills required to identify and collect relevant data through effective monitoring and then using it to ensure success of their projects. There is considerable specialization, both among types of construction and among on-site operations of a particular project. With the increasing understanding of materials, improved designs, improved construction and management techniques and introduction of computers, modern construction is a multi-disciplinary activity. Technological changes in construction trend to be gradual and include a wide variety of developments in materials, equipment and methods. There is a pressing demand for a high level of construction management in order to derive the required benefits from these new developments.

INTRODUCTION:

In the past, when dealing with difficult sites for construction purposes, the conventional practice was limited to either replacing the unsuitable soils, or bypassing them with costly deep foundations. Additionally, the age-old problem of land scarcity and the need to rebuild aging infrastructure in urban areas, increased realization of seismic hazards, and regulations mandated for various environmental problems, have been the impetus for the evolution of a number of ground improvement techniques during the past 25 years. Innovative ground modification approaches are routinely used now to solve unique soil-related problems, and often are considered to be the most economical means to improve an undesirable site condition. Geosynthetics have proven to be among the most versatile and cost-effective ground modification materials. Their use has expanded rapidly into nearly all areas of civil, geotechnical, environmental, coastal, and hydraulic engineering. The Indian Chapter of IGS is promoting the applications of the Geosynthetics as important and relevant to India’s need for infrastructure development, for more than two decades. This course introduces Geosynthetics from the perspective of practical application. Geosynthetics solutions include Geotextiles, geogrids and combinations of Geotextiles and geogrids. While a wide variety of site improvement methods have been used during the past decade, soil reinforcement has emerged as an efficient, economical and effective solution to the problem of constructing embankments over soft soils. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Geo-synthetics and Reinforced Soil Structures” from 20 – 23 June, 2017.

INTRODUCTION:

Housing is the most important infrastructure without which survival of the humanity would be miserable. In India, the population has been growing with a remarkable percentage growth in urban population. It is very difficult to find vacant lands to fulfill the unlimited demand of houses, particularly in urban areas. Vertical expansion seems to be a prospective solution to solve this problem. The public and private sector are playing very important role in providing housing by way of constructing tall buildings, i.e high rise buildings to provide a large floor area in a relatively small land area to maximize the optimum utilization of lands in urban centers. Hence it is evident that the human aspiration to build increasingly tall structures are inherent from the ancient times baring examples of pyramids of giza, Egypt – Mayan temples of Mexico, Qutub Minar of India. The lateral stability of the structure is most important in addition to the strength, serviceability, human comfort, ductility in design requirements duly integrating architecture with structural design as a complex one. It is essential for everyone involved in construction industry to understand the sequence and programme of planning, construction and issues involved in maintaining the structures to fullfill the designed life of structure.
