Overview

Civil engineering and construction have historically been seen as a carbon intensive industry, with concrete often referred to as the second most consumed item on the planet.

In the race to net zero, the industry must decarbonise. A key to decarbonisation is the specification and development of low carbon materials for use in infrastructure. The development of these materials requires collaboration, which can only be achieved by early engagement between designers and the supply chain.

Andy Avery, associated materials engineer, AECOM, and Tony Zigler, regional technical manager, Heidelberg Materials, will give a presentation on their work over the past 15 years in the specification and development of low carbon materials and new products currently coming to the industry.

Andy Avery

Andy provides practical advice and guidance on the specification and use of a wide range of construction materials and associated testing methods. He has 27 years of on-site delivery experience with test houses and Tier 1 contractors in the highways, light rail, civil aviation, defence aviation, nuclear power new build and nuclear defence sectors both in the UK and overseas.

Most recently he has spent 2 years in design consultancy with AECOM for major clients such as National Highways, Babcock and Wessex Water in the areas of technical specification for high quality, right first-time buildability with lower carbon materials.

Tony Zigler

Tony has worked for Heidelberg Materials for 32 years in a range of operational and technical roles in asphalt, aggregates and concrete. He is currently regional technical manager for Heidelberg’s concrete business in the south of England with additional responsibility for their Product Development department. He has worked on projects as diverse as driveways to nuclear power stations, and is a firm believer that the best solution to any problem needs everyone in the supply chain to understand the nuances of the project.
