Getting the Quality you Need: A professionals guide to on site concrete quality control – testing and interpretation of results
Date: Postponed | Venue: Online Event
While many factors can disrupt construction schedules, few are more frustrating than questions concerning in-situ concrete quality. In many cases unnecessary delay and cost is caused by poor site testing practices rather than substandard construction.
In this seminar, we will discuss quality testing that occurs before a product arrives onsite and provide guidance on correct methods of sampling and testing concrete placed on site. Delivered by highly experienced industry professionals, the differences between quality requirements placed on producers and those on site will be explained. In addition, the seminar will advise how results should be interpreted, and the consequences to both producers and contractors of poor practices.
This seminar is an indispensable update for Design Engineers, Site Engineers, those in a supervisory roles and all interested in the efficient delivery of quality concrete structures.
