PRESS RELEASE

In collaboration with the Estonian Association of Civil Engineers, the companies of Consolis—AS E-Betoonelement and AS CES—organize a high-level advanced training “Design of high-rise buildings in precast concrete”. ehk „Kõrghoonete kavandamine monteeritavast raudbetoonist”.

The training will take place on the 30th of January at the conference centre of Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference and Spa Hotel Tallinn, Toompuiestee 27, in Tallinn.

Architects, designers, engineers, and builders are welcome to participate in the advanced training.

Agenda:
9:30-10:00 Registration
10:00-10:15 Introduction

10:15-11:00 Precast high-rise building structures and connections in precast stability structures, I. 
“The construction of high-rise buildings with precast concrete elements can be beneficial over traditional construction methods. However, it requires a different approach to the structural design of stability structures. Examples of high-rise buildings fully stabilized with precast concrete elements will be presented in order to identify relevant structural issues.”
Lecturer Dick van Keulen, PhD

11:00-11:20 Coffee break

11:20-12:45 Precast high-rise building structures and connections in precast stability structures, II. Lecturer Dick van Keulen, PhD

12:45-13:45 Lunch

13:45-14:45 Special considerations in global design for precast (2D, 3D)

“Design engineers are faced with an exponential development of structural analysis software. As complexity of the analyses grows, so does the uncertainty related to the validity of the results. The presentation addresses the topic with a specific focus on precast concrete structures.” 
Lecturer Gabriel Tarta, PhD

14:45-15:00 Coffee break

15:00-16:30 Tying system in precast for accidental actions (high-rise buildings).

“While planning pre-cast structures the tying system plays a crucial role to ensure structural integrity: how to keep load bearing structures connected with stabilizing structures and how make sure “nothing collapses” and the damage is “in reasonable limits”.” 
Lecturer Alar Käes, authorized civil engineer

16:30 Concluding words

The participants of the training will receive a certificate with 8.4 TP.
The training will be in English.
