Each civil construction job is planned and organised from the construction plans and specifications.
There are a range of plans, drawings and specifications used in civil construction to show specific details for different applications.
Whilst you will receive your work instructions and specifications as part of a work plan or works program drawn up by your project manager or site supervisor you will still need to be able to read, interpret and check your work against drawings and specifications.
This course will take you through the types of plans and specifications, verifying amendments, converting scales and interpreting symbols and dimensions.
