IPWEAQ

Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

Concrete pathways and cycleways are an important and integral consideration in the planning and design of subdivisions, roads, open spaces and other environments where people and active transport devices need to travel.  There are a variety of design aspects that must be considered to provide appropriate, long-lasting and economical concrete paths irrespective of location, size, cost or complexity.  

IPWEAQ, in collaboration with Danley, is pleased to offer a half day workshop on Concrete Pathway Design based on the Australian Standard AS3727 – Guide to Residential Pavement. The course will provide designers and practitioners with information to appropriately design, construct and maintain concrete pathways and cycleways, through the knowledge and guidance provided by experienced industry design professionals. 

The course reaffirms the materials, production, testing, placement and finishing of concrete and reinforcing required for good pathway design. Although concentrating on Pathway design applications, learning outcomes can be applied to most concrete design projects incorporating ground slabs subjected to light traffic conditions.

Learning outcomes include:

  • Familiarising designers, civil engineers, and practitioners with best practice               concrete pathway design.
  • Outlining application of appropriate concrete joint design and placement for the         control random cracking.
  • Describing how ground surface and environmental conditions can influence               pathway design, pathway location, pathway elements and associated features.
  • Providing training focused on meeting local requirements with associated case           studies.
Outline

Focusing on:

  • General concrete practice and principles
  • Reinforcing practice and principles.
  • Issues and considerations related to concrete pathway design.
  • Application of Concrete Pathway design standards.
  • Concrete Pathway best practice design and construction.

The workshop is primarily aimed at, but not limited to:

  • civil engineers involved in pathway design
  • pathway design and safety consultants
  • engineers requiring specialist training or understanding of issues relating to               concrete failures on concrete pathways and cycleways.
  • state road authority staff who deal in pathway design, development, and                     construction.
  • graduate engineers looking for specialist skills for career development
  • practitioners looking to refresh or expand their understanding of pathway design       and construction.
  • engineers and designers contributing to aspects of subdivisions, road and other         infrastructure design.
