Next Technical Seminar

Practical Concreting

Date: 23rd and 30th September |  Venue:  Online Event

Advances in constituent materials, production processes, and construction technologies have all contributed to improvements in concrete construction. However, the successful execution of concrete construction requires sound practice on site. Careful planning of on-site resources and processes, together with coordination and communication, are necessary to minimise potential problems, and to ensure quality is achieved and maintained throughout.
In this technical seminar our experienced panel of speakers will provide practical information and guidance for those involved in the planning, management and supervision of concrete construction work.

Who should attend

This seminar has been designed for all those in mid to senior level positions. Contracts managers, project managers and site engineers will all find this seminar very beneficial. Site supervisory personnel, consulting engineers, ready-mixed concrete producers, and client representatives will also benefit from attending.
