10 Oct 2015

Geotechnical training courses on foundation design were carried out for ACES geotechnical engineers and geologists. The first course was conducted in Riyadh from 15-16 September, 2015, for staff from ACES KSA branches (Riyadh, Jeddah, Khobar, Najran, Breidah, Madinah), whereas another course was carried out in Abu Dhabi from 20-21 September, 2015, for staff from ACES Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al-Ain, Doha and Muscat branches. In total more than 40 engineers and geologists attended those training courses.

The courses covered a wide range of topics including bearing capacity and settlement in soil and rock as well as pile design. The content of this course was based on the newly drafted “ACES Foundations Guidelines”. The course was delivered by Dr. Amjad Barghouthi (Regional Manager for KSA & Jordan) and Dr. Ahmad Elkadi (Business Development Manager for KSA) in Riyadh and by Dr. Amjad Barghouthi and Eng. Emad Sherif (Branch Manager for Dubai and Muscat) in Abu Dhabi.

Those events were also a great opportunity to share experience and knowledge among ACES branches in Riyadh in Abu Dhabi
