Infrastructure Projects are largely intended to benefit the general public, and usually, the government is the Sponsor. Thus, Infrastructure Development Projects have a varied spectrum of Stakeholders. A delay in such Projects - for instance, the construction of a road, a power plant, or a water reservoir- can have negative implications for the population and may even result in political and economic issues at the national level. This webinar will look into various reasons for delays in infrastructure projects as well as mitigation proposals. Information Technology, Procurement, Production, Human Resources and even Consulting related projects are usually part of an Infrastructure Portfolio, so this Webinar is also relevant to professionals looking to improve these processes.

Lusail City extends across an area of 38 square kilometres and includes four exclusive islands and 19 multi-purpose residential, mixed use, entertainment and commercial districts. It is a comprehensive arena with leisure spots, residential buildings, commercial towers, avenues and public ports. Lusail, a true city of the future, will eventually accommodate 450,000 people. City includes 22 hotels with different international star ratings, making it an element of attraction for investment in Qatar.
When Sound Transit decided to expand the light rail system in Seattle, Washington, USA, it had to find a way to tunnel under the densely populated city without disrupting life above ground. Seattle was the second worst city in the U.S. for time commuters were stuck in traffic. The University Link Light Rail Extension extended the light rail system 3.2 miles (5 kilometers) through underground tunnels providing relief for roadway congestion. The rail line opened months ahead of schedule, and the project closed US$200 million under budget. This project was a finalist for the 2017 PMI Project of the Year Award. Learn about this awarded project’s challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in this webinar.

So while the foremost skill set in many concrete projects is structural engineering and risk assessment, the detailed calculations of stresses to identify or address critical areas of concern, require accurate knowledge of structure-specific material properties. In these scenarios, "book" values often have little value, and even well-kept construction records may have limited applicability if the age and the service conditions have caused material property degradation. As a project manager, it is critical to know when a detailed materials evaluation is necessary, and how to increase the confidence in the engineering basis of repair/replace decisions to maximize the value received with limited budgets. Real world examples will be presented to demonstrate the important role of material properties in concrete engineering assessments and repair projects
