Concrete Structures and Building Technical Seminar

Oaks on Market, Melbourne | 8:30am – 6:00pm | Thursday 21 February
Concrete Structures and Building Technical Group 

Overview

The Concrete Structures & Buildings Technical Group of the ACA has produced a technical program that focuses on discussing pragmatic considerations and outlining practical and optimised solutions for reinforced concrete structures.

Continuing to build on the success of previous Concrete Structures and Building themed events, this event will draw from the presenters’ and audiences’ experience, the lessons they have learnt through real life case studies, and openly explore both successes and failures for concrete assets from cradle to grave.

There will be a particular focus on the importance to design, build and maintain quality and durable concrete assets taking into account cost, time and broader sustainability considerations.

 

This one day event will bring together all stakeholders to discuss various corrosion issues across the Concrete Structures and Building Industries .

Networking drinks will follow presentations
