INTRODUCTION Infrastructure development has taken rapid strides in the country. Huge investments are being made both in the Government and Private Sector. Government of India and all State Governments have embarked upon construction projects in all segments like Irrigation, Housing, Airports, Railways, Power stations etc. One of the paramount needs in the projects is the quality management. The Stakeholders in the process include owners, Contractors consultants and financers. All the segments in construction industry need to focus attention on the technology, project management and quality in construction. Each one of the stakeholder shall look forward to establishing and managing quality systems in the building construction. Quality Management enables the organizations and individuals to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency in the construction activities. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Quality Management in Building Construction” from 28 – 31 August, 2017. OBJECTIVES The objective of this programme is to expose the participants to the basic concepts of quality management systems and the practices to achieve effectiveness and efficiency in the area of building building.

INTRODUCTION

Ground improvement, in a broad sense, is the change of any property of soil and treatment of ground so that the soil strata may be strengthened / improved to serve better for engineering applications. Variety of ground improvement techniques involving the physical, mechanical and/or chemical processes have been successfully implemented all over the world to overcome the problems caused by the treacherous sub-grade/foundation soils. Methods such as Preloading, Plastic Vertical Drains (PVDs), Stone Columns/Granular Piles, Vibro-techniques, Compaction Piling, Grouting, Heavy Tamping, etc. would be described and analysed. Methods appropriate for expansive soils would also be covered. OBJECTIVE Through this programme on “Soil Investigations & Ground Improvement Techniques in Infrastructure Development”, it is proposed to discuss different issues related to requirements for ground improvement, various techniques of improvement, water table lowering, compaction, tamping, addition of lime, cement and bitumen, gravel and sand columns, reinforced earth, soil replacement techniques, Geosynthetics and ultimately come out with appropriate techniques for different field conditions.

INTRODUCTION:

The total design, construction and management of bridges can be as simple as or as complex as desired but ultimately it starts with a solid inspection program. Bridges should have a level 1 maintenance inspection annually to determine if there are any issues that need to be remedied to keep the public safe. A level 1 inspection can be used effectively to screen and develop a program for more detailed needs such as higher level inspections. A level 2 condition inspection is a more comprehensive inspection and is completed on a less frequent and scheduled basis. Handover inspections can be completed as a level 2 inspection or as a separate report as required It is imperative that any problems with the infrastructure are identified. Regular inspections make it easier to plan and manage future network demand including budgets and risk.

INTRODUCTION

Construction is the largest among all the industries in the country and it has been growing at an alarming rate in India. The construction industry has been struggling with quality issues for many years, and the cost to our economy is dramatic. The cost could potentially be reduced significantly if the industry were to embrace the concept of quality assurance that has been used with great success by many other sectors of the economy. The construction industry is unique, and therefore, the application of quality assurance requires an approach that meets the needs of the industry. Building owners also need to be educated as to what is quality assurance so that they can begin using their voice to encourage adaptation of this approach to protect their investments and reduce the cost of construction. Quality control in construction typically involves ensuring compliance with minimum standards of materials and workmanship in order to assure the performance of facility according to the design. Quality assurance is about being “in control” of all major areas of your business (“key processes”) so that you can assure quality. Being “in control” also reduces variation, which improves quality. Quality assurance and quality tools add value wherever they are applied! The key to unlocking this value is to determine what level of investment is needed in quality assurance for your business. Quality assurance is a thought process as much as it is a system, which must be learned. Quality assurance is about control, applied systematic methods, assuring quality, applied due-diligence, risk management, keeping defects from your customer, mistake-proofing, continuous improvement, and so on. Therefore, it is a worthwhile investment to periodically utilize a qualified quality professional to impart the knowledge and to assist the company in developing and maintaining the quality system and “quality toolbox”. The result will be a much smarter company.
