About The Events

COURSE DESCRIPTION

During the construction of most projects, control testing shall be conducted on materials and workmanship to monitor compliance with the requirements of the specifications. Tests, measurements, and inspections shall be carried out using manual, mechanical and electronic equipment on materials and workmanship before, during and after construction to ensure compliance with the quality requirements of the specifications.

This course will describe the schemes that are specified to ascertain compliance with the specification of certain materials properties and workmanship. This is achieved by means of tests and measurements, and, where applicable, by applying statistical judgement plans.

The contents of the course will focus mainly on the fundamental amendments and additional requirements introduced subsequent to the publishing of the 1998 Edition of the COTO Specifications which has now been replaced by the 2020 Edition.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Attendance of the course will be beneficial to all practitioners involved in road pavement design, investigation, construction and testing such as road authorities, consulting engineers, compilers of procurement documentation, contractors, tendering and pricing departments, and road laboratories. Commercial suppliers of materials for earthworks and pavement layers will also gain knowledge of the new material specifications.
