Achieving Durable Concrete Technical Seminar

Achieving Durable Concrete Technical Seminar

Posted: 12/20/2019

Specifying the right concrete for each concrete element of a project
is a critical part of achieving durable sustainable structures that meet
client expectations.
In this day-long seminar, we look at aspects of design which enable Engineers to achieve durable reinforced concrete. From understanding the processes of possible deterioration to guidance on selecting exposure classes and using IS EN206. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and network during this day-long technical seminar, held in partnership with Engineers Ireland.
