Course Overview

What does building envelope mean in construction?

Construction projects always have approved designs and procedures documentation. Inspection of construction and building envelope ensures that these procedures are conformed to with strict adherence to best practices and industry standards. This course will give the participants detailed knowledge and understanding of inspection and various testing methods for concrete buildings and structures, steel structures, and various building envelopes. The nature and importance of this function cannot be overemphasised in any scenario, and this course ensures that professionals understand to great depth how to perform and dispense these functions efficiently.

What is the importance of building envelope inspection?

All the types of inspection and testing methods and techniques involved in different construction projects will be covered thoroughly in this course. The skills and knowledge acquired from this course are part of mandatory training for any professional who wants to maintain quality and ensure proper workmanship is followed in their projects.

This Zoe course is well designed to ensure the participants understand the building blocks, procedures, and standards when it comes to the construction and building envelope field. It will cover in detail some aspects of inspection such as why inspection and testing activities are important, how to focus on the practical and theoretical inspection ways, various quality management systems, integration of new inspection methods into the work domain, and how to apply the learnt skills of inspection and testing to the construction field.
