NHBC BFT2017

We have been busy for the last 4 weeks delivering our part of the NHBC Building for Tomorrow 2017 roadshow.   “Ground Investigation Good Practice” was the subject of our contribution.  It has been great meeting so many people and cascading the news on the GI changes coming due to EC7 and BS5930:2015.

More news on this road trip to follow….

BESPOKE EUROCODE TRAINING PROGRAMME COMMISSIONED

Surepath Training are pleased to announce that they have been commissioned to deliver a bespoke programme of Eurocode related courses for a contractor at their offices.  The course will include elements of EC0, EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC7.   Starting from a permanent works perspective, design requirements to satisfy the codes will be addressed using a combination of presentations, worked examples, and discussions.  With the aid of a specialist temporary works designer, the course will later move on to examine the application of the codes to temporary works problems selected by the client.

If you have a group of people needing training in this or any other skill area then contact us to discuss how we may be able to design a course to suit your needs and add value to your service provision.

ANOTHER SET OF GEOTECHNICAL COURSES COMMISSIONED

Building on the success of a programme of geotechnical design related courses in 2015 and 2016 for a regional site investigation company, Surepath Training are now delivering geotechnical training to another site investigation company in the area.  The course will be provided through a series of three mentoring style workshops made bespoke to the needs of the client.   The content is largely design related and includes a reprise of basic soil mechanics, ground modelling and parametric assessment issues, and aspects of foundation design, retaining walls, slopes and earthworks.
