Certification Course on Precast Concrete Construction Supervision

Event code: 74009 



The developers and contractors are increasingly using buildable design and Precast Concrete (PC) Construction to achieve higher productivity. The supervisor or coordinator of precast construction work needs to adopt a different approach from cast-in-situ construction. He needs to pay more attention to the sequence of erection, handling and storage of precast components, site access, safety measures, alignments and tolerances.

A competent PC supervisor needs to understand how the different joint details could affect the design behaviour of the PC components. He needs to have good understanding of the work site handling and site management procedures for PC construction, able to supervise and coordinate the erection of PC components and have the ability to plan and mobilize site resources to ensure a safe and satisfactory completion of the project. Construction professionals and managers working in companies that switch from traditional building methods to precast technology will find this course helpful in enhancing their competencies. It also opens up opportunities to move up to higher supervisory and management roles.


At the end of the course, the participant should have acquired the skills and knowledge to:
• Describe the various types of precast technology, their advantages and disadvantages, and their applications;
• Explain the behaviours of precast structures under loading and execution;
• Plan and organize the precast site and yard for effective erection and production;
• Supervise the production, transportation, erection, waterproofing and repair of precast components;
• Implement safe site and yard practices in precast construction.
