Description

Introduction

In this half-day technical seminar we will explore the design possibilities of using advanced materials technology, namely self-compacting concrete (SCC) and high performance concrete (HPC), to produce inspirational buildings and structures. Our experienced panel of speakers from Ireland and the UK will provide insights into the topics outlined and delegates will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions during our allocated discussion time.

Who Should Attend

Architects who are interested in developing designs that are outside the norm, consulting engineers who wish to further develop their knowledge of SCC and HPC and contractors who wish to gain better understanding of the challenges of using these materials. Architectural technologist and clients will also find this seminar useful.
