Overview

The purpose of this presentation is to widen the understanding of post-tensioned slab construction and show the benefits and opportunities it offers to developers, architects, engineers and contractors. The topics covered consider post-tensioned process from pre-construction, design, construction, quality control, sustainability and post-construction considerations. 

Embodied carbon within building structures is an important element of structural design considerations and post-tensioned concrete can offer reductions in the quantity of materials used compared to more traditional forms of construction. The benefits of post-tensioned concrete are best realised with considering structures as post-tensioned early in the design process.
