Avoiding Stormwater Management for Improved Water QualityBidding Construction Claims by Improving the Quality of Drawings, Specifications and Documents Prepared by Owners and Consultants

After participating in the course, you will be able to: gain insights to improving communications and design-review procedures that will build confidence in the quality of the design documents. discover contract documents quality control/ assurance methods from experiences of others focus on finding deficiencies in contract documents before bidding and contract signing use techniques to discover the correlation between the quality of construction documents and change orders and therefore the need to implement quality enhancement measures prevent claims before they arise carry home a step by step program to integrate a checking process into production avoid future errors in the communication of construction information as well as gain new insights into quality control Description One of the crucial means for controlling construction costs is to keep change orders and related costs to a minimum. This can be achieved by exercising greater care during the preparation of design, bidding and construction documents; ensuring the viability of design, improving the quality of working drawings and specifications, and being wary of the common causes of claims leading to cost overruns. This down-to-earth practical program explains where we are now, where do we want to go and how do we get there. Whether you are an owner, architect/engineer/interior designer, project manager, contractor/subcontractor/supplier, the program prepares you to focus your attention on design and production control, the review and evaluation of contract documents plus bidding and contract award process. By equipping you with the knowledge to enhance the quality of contract documents, this seminar enables you to avoid potential claims. Objective To identify the problems and then to focus on the available opportunities for reducing these, and thus possibly eliminating many of the frequently reoccurring situations which give rise to costly revisions, substitutions and claims which routinely occur during construction. Who Should Attend Government, institutional and private sector owners, architects/engineers and other design professionals, planners and contractor representatives, individuals responsible for developing and using construction documents, plus other construction personnel who can benefit from sharing the experiences of instructors and other participants.

Risk Management for Improved Water Quality Stormwater Assessment of Contaminated Sites

After participating in this course, you will be able to: deal with critical issues in risk assessment with the increased understanding gained from the course determine the need for site-specific risk assessment with a clear understanding of the applications and limitations of applying the generic soil and groundwater site condition standards develop a conceptual site model and perform risk calculations apply on your projects practical information received from an internationally recognized environmental expert that will save you time, effort and money. Description The use of Risk Assessment and Risk Management are gaining acceptance in all Canadian jurisdictions as consultants and their regulated industry clients are realizing the cost advantages of using this approach. There are also situations where the generic soil and groundwater data are not applicable and therefore a limited scope or site specific risk assessments must be used. Conducting a screening, semi-quantitative, or quantitative Site Specific Risk Assessment (SSRA) offers insights into remediation and risk management approaches that are not apparent by mere application of the Generic Site Condition Standards. In this seminar, Conceptual Site Model (CSM) development is discussed in detail. Risk calculation formulas are presented for carcinogens and noncarcinogens. Case studies by participants for CSM development and risk calculations enhance the understanding and use of these risk assessment aspects. The use of the Johnson and Ettinger Models for vapour intrusion into buildings from contaminated soil and groundwater is illustrated for different site conditions. Objective To provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how: · MOE developed the Generic Soil and Groundwater Site Condition Standards using the risk assessment approach. · To determine the need for SSRA · To conduct SSRA · To apply the limited scope risk assessment to different exposure pathways · Use the Johnson and Ettinger Model to develop risk based standards for vapor intrusion into buildings from contaminated soil and groundwater. The Seminar Presents: Risk assessment approach used by MOE and CCME for petroleum hydrocarbons Preliminary Quantitative Human Health Risk Assessment (PQHHRA) used by Health Canada for Federal Sites. Limited Scope (Tier 2) Risk Assessment SSRA to develop risk based standards Tiered criteria used by CCME Canada Wide Standard for petroleum hydrocarbons in Soil Who Should Attend Project managers and environmental personnel who are involved in contaminated site assessment and remediation.
