Event description

Description

This seminar will cover embedded pile walls, bottom up and top down construction of basements, all in accordance with Eurocodes 2 and 7. The seminar will also cover geotechnical considerations, ground conditions, waterproofing, site constraints, ground movements, methods of construction and ground movement.

Delegates will learn to:

  • Identify the factors influencing the planning of a basement

  • Differentiate the options for waterproofing to achieve the desired environment

  • Calculate crack widths in basement walls and slabs

  • Appreciate the importance of specification and workmanship in relation to basement design and construction

  • Propose structural forms and sequences to match the geotechnical conditions

  • Plan construction methodology and sequence, including estimating construction programme and costs

  • Assess the logistics and space requirements of different types of plant considering the construction methodology and ground conditions

  • Approach the CM examination question that includes basements with more confidence

Recommended for 4 hours CPD


Programme

14.30 Registration

15.00 Concept Design for CM Exam

Introduction to basement design to help with CM exam questions that include basements.

Willie Crowe

15.10 Geotechnical Considerations

This part of the seminar will cover earth and water pressures basements have to be designed to resist. Type of basement wall construction and its behaviour covering: diaphragm walls, secant pile walls and contiguous pile walls will be reviewed along with open cut and traditional stem retaining walls. Planning the Site Investigation and preparing technical tender information will be reviewed

Dr Andrew Bond

16.40 Break

17.10 Construction

This part of the seminar will cover how to excavate and keep the surrounding ground stable by using economical methods of construction. Plant and equipment will be reviewed along with examples of construction.

Sam Wong

17.40 Design

This part of the seminar will cover watertight concrete design, waterproofing, resisting water pressure and drained cavities. Design methods and control of basement environments. Crack width calculations, concrete mix design and quality for varying ground conditions will also be presented. Information on how to avoid cracking in concrete. Specification of concrete for basement construction..
