Course Description


This Industrial Building Designs and Renovation training course is a must for civil engineers working in various industries like oil & gas, power plants, water treatment plants and industrial factories projects. Participants of this workshop will gain advanced knowledge of analysis and design of steel / concrete structures, foundations and basic principles of structures renovation.

This training course will provide sample illustration of real structures that will assist the designer to understand design methodologies and apply it on different types of buildings. The examples to be used would vary from the typical two-dimensional beams and frames to the three-dimensional multistory frames to special systems such as space frames. This training course will present methods for inspection and evaluation of buildings, investigate the causes of structure deterioration and methods of renovation.

This GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Selecting a suitable structural system and preparing the general layout
  • Applying Loads & Load combinations as per IBC / UBC / ASCE
  • Analysis and design of industrial buildings
  • Methods of Structure Investigation
  • Methods of Structure Renovation
  • Materials to be used in Concrete / Steel Structures Repair


At the end of this training course, you will learn to: 

  • Determine the most convenient geometry, structural system and layout
  • Use the American codes to calculate applied loads and load combinations
  • Applying loads to structural models as per ASCE / IBC / UBC
  • Analyze and Design steel/concrete industrial buildings as per AISC [ASD / LRFD]
  • How to investigate & assess industrial building conditions
  • Decide appropriate renovation methodologies

Training Methodology

This Concrete Structure Designing for Industrial Projects training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. Daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative, videos and photos will be used for illustration.

Organisational Impact

  • Find out which structural systems are typically used in industrial buildings
  • Explore the complexities of using various crane systems in industrial buildings   
  • Work through a number of design examples illustrating practical solutions for various facets of the design for new construction and renovation
  • Explore common types of foundations for gable rigid frame structures made of structural steel, metal building systems, or concrete 
  • Find out how to design foundations for process equipment typically found in industrial buildings 
  • Anchorage to concrete and embedment
  • Learn how to increase load-carrying capacities of beams and frames

Personal Impact

Participant will have an understanding on:

  • The common practical challenges in the design of industrial buildings
  • The design for new construction, including typical framing systems, design of crane runway beams and crane supports
  • Foundations for building structures and equipment, anchors and embedment
  • Renovation and strengthening of industrial buildings
  • Vertical loads, wind, seismic retrofit, and foundation strengthening
  • The issues of building expansion and rehabilitation of the building envelope


This training course is designed for civil engineers and professionals working in industrial fields of oil & gas, power plants, water treatment plants and industrial factories projects who are involved in building analysis, design and/or renovation.
