GENESIS CONSTRUCTION 221:
SITE EVALUATIONS, INSTRUMENTATION AND EQUIPMENT
Monday, January 28 | 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
This technical, hands-on class is designed specifically for the pool and landscape trades. Students are introduced to terminology to properly interpret and enhance construction drawings, topographical surveys, plan views, and section views. Students will work through a series of exercises using field-measurement tools to obtain topographical information, documentation for future design purposes. Students are then provided plans and sections for a fictitious project that must be accurately laid out to ensure proper construction. Finally, the program continues with discussions about equipment and its limitations, from excavators and loaders to rammers and D-9s. All students should take home the confidence that they can accurately employ proper equipment to solve surveying and layout challenges during grading, excavation, and construction. This class will be taught by Paolo Benedetti, SWD Master and Bill Drakeley, SWD Master.
