Concrete Technical Group Event | Brisbane | May

  • May 25, 2018
    8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Concrete Technical Group

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.

This event continues to build on the success of previous concrete 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. 

This one day event will bring together all stakeholders to discuss various corrosion issues across the concrete structures and building fields.

Program as at 8 May 2018
