Earthworks

You’ll come away from the course being able to identify soil and rock properties, problem materials and identify testing requirements for quality control. You’ll also learn how to apply earthworks design and construction to your own projects.

In any major construction project - whether it be the development of a new road, a rail embankment, an earth dam or preparation for a new building - earth needs to be excavated and relocated.

The process for these works is covered in this two-day course, including the compaction process, quality controls, testing and many other elements essential to a successful operation. As a participant, you’ll be exposed to various earthworks models - geotechnical, laboratory, analytical, and design - as well as their limitations.

You’ll come away from the course being able to identify soil and rock properties, problem materials and identify testing requirements for quality control. You’ll also learn how to apply earthworks design and construction to your own projects.

Pre-course activities
Participants will be given access to the ‘Introduction to Earthworks’ video presentation.
