One of the major issues currently plaguing the construction industry is in the area of quality of construction. The rise in public complaints concerning low quality construction of buildings and infrastructure works executed by contractors is a wake-up call for all stakeholders of the industry to strive on improving all aspects of the industry including sewerage management construction.
Sewerage work is an important aspect of construction because it does not only involve client satisfaction but also environmental protection. Low quality works executed by sewerage contractors has resulted in increased expenses for rectification works which in turn is a burden on the taxpayers’ money.
Realizing the seriousness of the problem, a committee headed by the Director General of The Sewerage Services Department, CIDB and stakeholders of the sewerage sector was formed to develop a training course for the ‘Sewerage Construction Manager’. It is hoped that the course will address the issues of quality of construction in the sewerage sector through proper management by qualified personnel.
The successful participant of the course will be awarded a certificate of proficiency. The course will be part of the new registration requirement imposed by CIDB and other relevant authorities for sewerage contractors executing large sewerage projects
