Constructing and inspecting SuDS CPD training available now

CIRIA is thrilled to announce the launch of a new one day training course Constructing and inspecting SuDS to complement CIRIA’s Guidance on the Construction of SuDS (C768).

This engaging course is designed for anyone managing, supervising or inspecting SuDS construction on site. The training will build on the information presented in SUDS guidance C768 and will cover strategic as well as practical issues of delivering SUDS in the built environment.

The one day course will provide an overview of good practice related to all aspects of SuDS construction from site planning to completion and handover as well as the typical challenges that can arise during construction, and how to avoid/overcome them. Delegates will also hear examples of good and poor practice to explain key issues and understand the use of typical checklists for both interim site inspections and to enable completed SuDS to be evaluated prior to handover.

Training will be delivered by industry experts and authors of CIRIA guide C768 and both trainers have experience in SuDS construction and have acted as expert witnesses in cases where landscape or engineering construction has resulted in problems.

Sue Ilman, Managing Director, Illman Young and CIRIA trainer commented “Recent storms and surface water flooding have only emphasized the need to use SuDS more widely, and therefore getting their construction right.”

Steve Wilson, Technical Director, The Environmental Protection Group Ltd and CIRIA trainer said “Supervision and inspection of SuDS construction by knowledgeable people can prevent issues becoming major problems once a scheme is completed.”

Paul Shaffer, CIRIA Associate and SuDS lead stated “Over the years, I’ve visited SuDS schemes and have noticed aspects of their design that didn’t look right, or they just simply didn’t work. Often the response from the designer is, that this was how it was constructed. This course has been developed to overcome this problem, and provide greater confidence that SuDS will perform as designed delivering the benefits clients, designers and communities expect.”
