Substantial growth and opportunities for Florida contractors with the Construction Management Development Program

Construction Estimating Institute (CEI), who offers construction training programs nationwide, had acquired a contract with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), to initiate the Construction Management Development Program (CMDP) and Bond Guarantee Program (BGP). The programs are intended for small businesses and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), who are looking for bid and executing construction work, to give them proper training and assistance.

The training will commence on Tuesday, September 24th in Orlando, repeated on Thursday, September 26th in Fort Lauderdale with the launch of “Your Road to Working with FDOT” seminars. Attendees will acquire knowledge on how to make their companies get ready to participate in competitive bidding on FDOT construction projects.

By attending this seminar one can learn how to bid public work, finding jobs in your area, gaining access to the FDOT website as well as achieving FDOT backed bonds. There will be also arrangement for training towards small businesses in the arena of plan reading and estimating, constructing and submitting bids, project planning and scheduling, and elementary business operations.

In order to register your seat, contact with CEI at phone: 1-800-423-7058, fax: 1-941-346-0221

Two-Day US Workshop Series for Efficient design of post-tensioned buildings

This workshop series is purposely designed for those who get interested in availing practical training & in detail training in 3D-FEM concrete software, modeling processes and methods used for the design and evaluation of post-tensioned buildings.

There will be wide-ranging workflows and intermutual step-by-step guidance which will be undertaken for common structure types like parking garages with post-tensioned girders and one-way slabs, mat/raft soil-supported foundations, two-way elevated slabs and transfer/podium slabs.

The attendee can acquire in-depth training concerning each specific structure type with ADAPT-Builder 2012 software (containing ADAPT-Floor Pro, Edge and MAT) in an interactive learning atmosphere. Special guidance will be provided for the utilization and incorporation of ADAPT-Edge, a newly launched multistory analysis tool by ADAPT.

One can gather practical expert knowledge & understanding on how to effectively utilize these software tools in the design phase and extend practical workflows for completing a project.

First Day - Parking Structure with PT Girders and One-Way Conventional Slab / Soil-supported Mat Foundation Design:
  • Get acquainted with software tools applying the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the Equivalent Frame Method (EFM)
  • Presentation and demonstration of a new multistory analysis tool for concrete structures, both traditionally reinforced and post-tensioned, ADAPT-Edge
  • Explanation of workflows from start points regarding Revit integration, DWG/DXF files or other 3rd party software output
  • Revit model integration with ADAPT-Builder and model authentication
  • Pre-analysis formation concerning gravity and lateral loads, load patterns, elastic combination definition, long-term and cracked deflection combinations, stiffness and material assumptions
  • A superior application for modeling involving components, finite element meshing, tendon modeling/optimization and analysis options
  • Amendments for introducing mat foundation and load takedown
  • Examination of the structure and creation of design criteria as well as design strips for beams/girders and one-way slabs
  • Design strip implementation and drawing out of graphical and tabular results for report collection
  • Export of reinforcement to Revit and Autocad
Second Day - Two-Way Elevated Slab / Two-way Transfer Slab
  • Assessment of workflow for two-way slab systems in multistory structures or transfer/podium slabs
  • Conversion of DWG/DXF files to structural components in ADAPT-Builder
  • Formation of a multistory model from singular models or numerous drawing files
  • Detailed modeling, analysis and design instruction for two-way slab systems similar to Day 1
  • Evaluation of results and preparation of graphical reinforcement layout for export to Autocad
Series of upcoming USA workshop
  • New York, NY - September 19 - 20
  • Vancouver, BC - September 25 - 26
  • Phoenix, AZ - October 17 - 18
  • Dallas, TX - November 7 - 8
