It prepares the ground to carry heavy loads, such as a new home, office complex, road, or another piece of infrastructure. That is what PICE Qatar through the Committee on Continuing Professional Advancement (COCPA) highlights in their 10th online seminar entitled “THE ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS IN SUPERVISING VARIOUS PILING WORKS” last August 12, 2022.
