About this event

Concrete is a global material having a well-established record of use. It might therefore be assumed every type of construction application has been covered at both a pragmatic and fundamental level. However, applications are always stretching the boundaries, resulting in materials changes and new techniques for making, placing and finishing concrete. Performance demands continue to grow affecting strength, appearance, durability, sustainability and costs. This trend is exemplified by show case projects that act as a source of new ideas and opportunities for design and function.

This programme will cover a variety of offshore and onshore constructions together with novel materials and the reasoning behind their successful application. It provides an opportunity to meet those involved with these state-of-the-art projects.

This Symposium will be held during the 46th ICT Annual Convention and includes the 10th Sir Frederick Lea Memorial lecture, presented by Professor Karen Scrivener of the EPFL in Switzerland.

This is an opportunity to pursue concrete’s versatility by way of exemplar projects that reflect opportunity and set the benchmark for exploitation.
