Training Programme at L&T, Chennai

By With No comments:

I was recently invited to deliver a guest lecture at Larson & Toubro (L&T), Chennai. I had to deliver a lecture as part of the training programme conducted for the staff of L&T Heavy Infra Civil in 01-M1A cadre (those who are mostly in supervisory and group leader levels).

The training programme on "Diaphragm walls" was planned to be conducted for two days at L&T Construction Headquarters, Chennai on 20th & 21st June 2014. The main aim of the programme was to share the knowledge on the construction of diaphragm walls, by inviting internal and external subject matter experts from the industries.

I delivered the lecture on the topic "Diaphragm wall construction - Site planning & control". I shared my experience from projects done in Singapore and India; I also highlighted the gaps and suggested areas of improvement for the staff.

The programme co-ordinator, Dr. K. S. Ramakrishna, wrote to me after the training programme as follows:
Dear Mr.Manickavel,

I take this opportunity to thank you for sparing your valuable time and for delivering an excellent lecture on

Diaphragm Walls Construction- Site Planning and Control

You have been able to expose the participants to various issues related to the site planning and control. I am sure all the participants could feel the vast experience and knowledge with which you could speak and this must benefit them in their careers.

I once again thank you for disseminating your knowledge and experience to the young and promising engineers of this great institution called L&T.

I look forward to more opportunities where you can share your experience with the deep foundations engineering community in India.


I thank L&T for inviting me to share my knowledge and experience with the upcoming Engineers.
