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 the 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.

It is observed that thousands of people are killed every year. Some of the reasons for these accidents are attributed to exponential growth in personalized vehicles, inadequate road network, lack of efficient public transport system and on – integration of the public transport system
with IPT modes. Since Road Transport is a major share in traffic movement both passengers as well as goods, it is necessary to concentrate on Road Transport Regulation and enforcement to improve Road Safety.
It is observed that even well-educated groups also violate the traffic rules and also are not aware of the existing rules and regulations. In that case, it becomes necessary to educate these groups of passengers through awareness campaigns etc.  
It is in this context, ESCI is organizing a 5-day programme on “Road Safety Management”.

INTRODUCTION

Pre-stressed concrete is used largely in bridges, multistory buildings in many other important parts of present modern infrastructure while Post-tensioned concrete is becoming increasingly used particularly for high rise construction where the saving in the slab depths can make a big difference in the height of the building. Post-Tensioning is a productive way of reinforcing concrete while you are constructing - often allowing the construction of something which might contrarily have been impractical. It is a method of reinforcing concrete or other materials with high-strength steel. The inherent vulnerability of concrete in tension is counteracted by introducing a pre-compression in a pre-stressed member, which improves its service load behavior, leading to reduced deflections and cracking. An early perspective of its behavior is essential before safe and economical designs can be produced. The use of pre-stressed and post-tensioned concrete structures reduces the time of construction and provides quality assured members. It also reduces the building weight, which reduces the lateral loads caused by earthquakes thus delivering a more economical and environmentally friendly solution. The efficiency of the design depends on the understanding by engineers of the pre-stressing concept as applied to the common concrete elements. Engineering Staff College of India (ESCI), keeping in view of the above requirements, is privileged to announce a programme on “Pre-Stress and Post-tensioned Structures- Design, Construction, and Repair” from 30 October – 02 November 2018. This course will provide a detailed coverage on the behavior of pre-stressed and post-tensioned concrete, analysis and design for strength, serviceability, and losses in pre-stress.

INTRODUCTION In India, Every year about 1,50,000 people are killed in Road Accidents with over 4,50,000 accidents. World wide the situation is similarly alarming with several major countries & Organizations recognizing the situation as a public health issue. Research has proved that proper Crash Investigation, documentation & analysis can help us in understanding the underlying causes of accidents & take the necessary corrective actions in reducing the accidents. Crash Investigation is science, and very few people are properly trained in our country. Several factors need to be analyzed in Crash Analysis and Investigation & many features have to be well documented for future review & as evidence. This course is designed to provide such skills for persons involved in Crash Analysis and Investigation.

INTRODUCTION:

Quantity of surveying plays a vital role in the construction management of different projects by using technical skills and soft practices to assist in successful delivery of projects. There is a need for measurement of a proposed construction project from the preparation of DPR, implementation of various techniques phase wise and till its completion. Considering the above, ESCI is organizing a 4 day training programme on Best Practices in Quantity Surveying.

INTRODUCTION

Durability of any structure increases with good maintenance practices from the day one of its completion. Good maintenance practices lead a building to successfully complete its designed life. During the recent past, much importance is not being given for the maintenance of structures, resulting in distress of structures prematurely. Any structure is bound to show signs of distress in the form of cracks or deflections at some stage of the life. If the structure shows the signs of distress before its design life, it can be made to perform well with appropriate repair/rehabilitation / retrofitting process. In seismic active regions, the structures are subjected to both static and dynamic loads and hence, special care needs to be taken while performing the analysis, as well as repairing and maintenance processes. Prevention, diagnosis, and rectification of structural defects – sometimes leading to collapses, is a legal and moral responsibility of all those concerned with conceiving, planning, design and construction of building projects. Lack of durability of RCC structures is another agonizing concern, especially in coastal areas. RCC buildings designed to last for a century needing “Rehabilitation works” within 30 years of construction is a matter of grave concern. It is essential for everyone involved in the construction industry to understand the intricacies involved in repair/rehabilitation / retrofitting and maintenance of the structures for understanding the problem in a better manner and also to know the latest trends in managing these issues. This programme on “Good Maintenance Practices for Durability of Structures”, ESCI aims to address the issues involved in good maintenance practices for the durability of structures.

INTRODUCTION:

India has a vast road network playing a pivotal role in the movement of 65% of total freight and 85% of total passenger traffic in the country. With the total length of roads in the country exceeding 3.34 million kilometers, India stands second only to the United States. Traffic on Indian roads is growing at a rate of 10 to 12% per annum. To satisfy the increasing Traffic demand on roads, programmes such as NHDP and PMGSY have been launched. But the initial performance levels of the pavements built so far have not been so encouraging. The condition of most of the roads is deplorable. Potholes, deep enough to damage the vehicles, stretches, washed away by rains and shoulders poorly maintained are often becoming death-traps for motorists. The recent deluge in major cities woke up everyone to recognize the need to upgrade its infrastructure. The quality of our roads cannot meet the needs of an efficient and fast moving transportation system. All this is seen in spite of technology growth. We have not yet fully adopted the new developments in construction and maintenance activities. Most of the Indian roads are flexible pavements, the ones having asphalt-toppings. Flexible pavements have a great advantage that these can be strengthened and improved in stages with the growth of traffic. Another major advantage of these roads is that their surfaces can be milled and recycled. These are less expensive also. To create awareness among the engineers on the benefits of adopting proper design procedures, materials, construction techniques, quality control and maintenance reducing the life-cycle costs, this three day programme on “Flexible Pavements and Overlays - Design, Construction and Maintenance” is formulated to fulfill the needs of the agencies who are associated with formulation and developing the road sector in India.

INTRODUCTION:

Management of the construction works in a project has become a vital point as it involves many components. This has to be tackled in an efficient manner for economic, timely and quality completion of any project. As the Construction Management is complex in nature, planning is to be done in advance duly taking into consideration, the various works involved, technical and non-technical skills required, finances required, the period of completion to see that every component is completed in time as per the requirements. As most of the projects are getting in trouble due to lack of proper planning management skill and finances. It is desirable to have an effective management in the construction of any project so as to get the benefits expected in time. Unless the officers involved in the construction of projects and construction companies are properly trained in construction management, it is very difficult to manage the construction of any project. Realizing the necessity, ESCI is organizing a 4-day training programme on Construction Management – Best Practices and Modern Technologies.

INTRODUCTION:

All the Structures built with material and exposed to weathering conditions are bound to show signs of distress in the form of cracks or deflections during some stage of the life. If the structure shows the signs of distress before its design life, it can be made to perform well with appropriate repair / rehabilitation / retrofitting process. Before any of these remedial are applied, it is imperative that the structure needs to be evaluated thoroughly. In seismic active regions, the structures are subjected to both static and dynamic loads and hence, special care needs to be taken in evaluating the condition, as well as repairing processes. Prevention, diagnosis and rectification of building defects, if neglected, sometimes leading to collapses, is the legal and moral responsibility of all those concerned with conceiving, planning, design and construction of building projects. Lack of durability of RCC structures is another agonizing concern, especially in coastal areas. RCC buildings designed to last for a century needed “Rehabilitation works” within 30 years of construction. It is essential for everyone involved in the construction industry to understand the intricacies involved in repair/rehabilitation / retrofitting of the structures for understanding the problem in a better manner and also to know the latest trends in managing these issues. This programme on “Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting of Buildings-Diagnosis, Preventive actions and Repair Techniques”, aims to address the issues involved in damage assessment and rectification of defects.
