LC019: Grading and Drainage: A Necessary Evil
Grading and drainage can be a tedious task, but it is imperative to get it right in order to achieve success on your next construction job.

This seminar will benefit contractors and designers with little or no familiarity with grading and drainage requirements and processes.

Participants will explore grading principles and standards, and their impact on surface drainage, for most landscape projects. Basic grading calculations, the use of site surveys, the manipulation of land forms, and the preparation of grading details and plans for both surface and in-ground drainage is presented. In-ground drainage considerations are introduced. Typical grading notation methods are also presented. Participants will be required to carry out typical grading calculations and prepare simple grading details.

Participants should bring: scientific calculator, architect's scale and extra paper.
