Construction & Building Envelope Inspection


Inspection is the observation of construction for conformance with the approved design documents. This course on Construction & Building Envelope Inspection will highlight and cover all the inspection & testing aspects for concrete and steel structure construction, and building envelope. It will enable individuals, who are in the inspection and testing field or want to be a specialist inspector, to understand the nature and the importance of this function.

This training course will help the attendees to understand the types of inspection and testing involved in a construction project, which are mandatory to assure the quality of materials used as well as the workmanship. It will also provide guidance and recommendations for design and inspection consideration to provide a long-lasting exterior building envelope system
