Specifications for Concrete in Local Government - Friday 4 November, 2016
Local government uses concrete to construct various assets including footpaths, cycleways, kerbs and gutters, pavements for high traffic areas, roundabouts, intersections, parking areas and stormwater drainage systems. Appropriate design methods and construction techniques are essential to the successful procurement of local government infrastructure. Proactive maintenance practices and systems ensure that assets serve the needs of the community over a long period of time.
NATSPEC, CCAA and IPWEA have organised this seminar to raise awareness of issues in the design, construction and maintenance of concrete infrastructure and the benefits of harmonisation of concrete specifications across local government. Topics will include techniques for material design, supply, placing, formwork, compaction, joints and curing of concrete. The importance of correct specification and the use of AUS-SPEC local government specifications for the life cycle management of these assets will also be covered. Participants will have a chance to discuss these topics in detail with industry experts.
NATSPEC conducts annual training in venues around Australia. Specifications – an overview and production and wordprocessing provides an introduction to specification writing, and the detailed use of SPECbuilder Live (for use on all operating systems) and Microsoft Word in specification writing, using NATSPEC and/or AUS-SPEC Templates.
Some previous seminars have been recorded. See what is covered in Seminar Videos.
