This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment, with a particular focus on existing constructions compared with new constructions.


Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Compare the differences between refurbishment and new construction
  • Demonstrate an understanding of traditional construction
  • Evaluate practical options for demolition of major buildings
  • Identify specific structural hazards which may occur in demolition
  • Understand temporary structural support methods



Tutor

Charles Treasure is a professional engineer with 40 years’ experience in structural and geotechnical design for both temporary works and permanent works, and in management and co-ordination of the design process. He is an Associate in Wentworth House Partnership. Charles presented a paper on designing cost-effective temporary works at the 2009 national conference on deep basements and underground structures.


Intended for

Design engineers with a reasonable level of experience. However, it will be of use to all concerned with demolition and refurbishment, including contractors, client managers and advisors.


Entry criteria

The course is designed to cover specific engineering topics, and therefore will be of maximum benefit to those with a reasonable level of experience in construction. However, there are no minimum requirements for attending or benefitting from this course.
