The Concrete Centre in collaboration with the Modern Masonry Alliance, Architectural & Structural Precast Association, CONSTRUCT, Post-Tensioning Association, Precast Flooring Federation, BRMCA, CPSA and UK CARES will be delivering two best practice roadshow events. The full-day events provide four hours of CPD and will be taking place at Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture, Glasgow on 17th May and Manchester Metropolitan Business School on 15th June.  

Andrew Minson, executive director at The Concrete Centre and British Precast will open the day and will be followed by presentations that will feature case studies and exemplars, as well as technical guidance providing an in-depth look into the use and capabilities of concrete, and how it continues to innovate and evolve. Some of the topics are: 

  • Specifying sustainable concrete to BS 8500
  • Novel cements and low carbon concrete
  • Achieving visual in-situ concrete
  • Concrete Offsite: case studies on structural precast and architectural cladding
