Building a concrete future: designing and specifying sustainable concrete structures
Concrete provides long-term durable, efficient and resilient structures. Yet, the benefits to wider sustainability provided by concrete construction must be balanced against the necessity to reduce associated environmental impacts. This requires consideration of how concrete can be used in sustainable design, starting with initial discussions with clients, through to methods of specification and choice of materials.
This seminar will provide engineers with practical information and guidance on applying sustainability practices in designing concrete structures. Our industry professional and expert speakers will cover important details from client brief, designing for whole of life, to improving the efficiency of the structure.
Who Should Attend
This seminar will be of particular interest to Design and Consulting Engineers involved in the design, specification, and supervision of construction. Site Engineers, Main Contractors, Ready-mixed and Precast Concrete Producers will also benefit from attending.
