6 things that an Engineer should check when he inspects an Excavation. SSSSDIMFF. = stable. supported safe access and exit stop logs. dewatered if necessary Inspected daily before each shift May be a confined space (gas detection needed). fenced off properly (falls from height) formation need protection from weather
Traditional Procurement, who is the contract between. the contract is between the Employer and the designer and then the employer has a seperate contract with the contractor.

T o ensure safety of a construction worker, these two things must be carried out Work should be regulated Risk Assessment must be carried out by designers and contractors.
To ensure safety of a construction worker, name 2 works that must be carried out. Work should be regulated. Risk assessment must be carried out by designers and contractors.
Explain why loads have different factors of safety Because they allow for uncertainty in the design process. or Because they provide a design margin over the theoretical design capacity.
list 6 items to check when pouring a re- inforced concrete foundations. Lap lengths Sufficient Chairs. Spacer Blocks Tilings Kickers Starters.
Identify the main problems in the use of driven piles and list a solution How long to make them. (i.e. knowing what length to make them is a design issue) Solution would be to use segmental piles 2 to 5 metres in length.
Who designs where to put each of theses joints. Expansion Joints - Designer Contraction Joints - Designer Construction Joints - Contractor.
6 items the temporary works designer should consider when designing form-work for a wall pour Mix Design. Types of release agents. limitations on size of form-work type and position of Construction Joints. Deflection Limits for the formwork Type of finish required for all formed surfaces. Method of Sealing the form surfaces.
Long term staining or spalling of concrete is caused by Extreme weathering Conditions.
Why would you take Piezometer readings for at least 6 months? They are taken for 6 months to see if there are any changes in the groundwater levels, this is then used for designing de-watering methods of excavations.
2 methods of temporary lowering the ground water table. Sump Pumping Well Point System.
3 Construction Techniques that bentonite is used for: Excavating Slurry trenches. Diaphragm walls, Pressure grouting
4 Hazards a concrete gang could face, when using a skip to pour concrete into a reinforced concrete foundation. Spilling of concrete could create slippery surface Alkaline could come in contact with eyes or skin. Moving skip could hit workers.

What is Notifiable Project under C.D.M 2007? Notifiable projects are those which last longer than 30 days or involve more than 500 people in construction work.
Describe the role of the C.D.M CO-ordinator. To advise the client on Health and Safety issues during the Design and Planning phases of Construction work.
Describe the role of the Principal Contractor. To plan, manage and co-ordinate Health and Safety while construction work is being undertaken.
Give 4 reasons why an understanding of the ground water level is important to the designer and constructor of a project containing a basement structure. Ground water could make our structures float. Danger of drowning. It could cost money. Flood our excavations/trenches/pits.
On a Drawing of a tank, you specify the diameter to be 12000 metres, is this a term of the Contract? Yes it is because the designer will specify what he or she wants in detail.
Explain the Contractual Purpose of the "Drawing" Drawings are specifications for the contractor, so they visualize the finished project.
