"What's New in Concrete" 2017 proved to be a success for The Institute!9 Feb 2017

Our showcase event, “What’s New in Concrete 2017” proved to be a success, and a great start to 2017 for The Institute! Enjoyed by over 120 industry guests, Adelaide Oval played host to 19 tradeshow exhibitors too. We would like to thank all those that attended, sponsored this event, showcased and were involved in the preparation and delivery.

February is a busy month for the SA Branch, as we will also be delivering a site visit of the O’Bahn City Access Project! Representatives from McConnell Dowell Australia and Wallbridge & Gilbert Consulting Engineers will provide an in-depth walk through one of the most highly patronised public transport corridor in the metropolitan area!

Our upcoming SA Branch event “What’s New in Concrete 2017” is beginning to take full flight, with a range of leading industry suppliers signing on to take part in our extended networking and trade show exhibition event.

There will also be two presentations delivered by industry experts from BOSFA and Boral, discussing “Fibre Reinforced Concrete” and its role in the upcoming Australian Standard due for release shortly, and “High Strength Concrete”.

A quick reminder that this showcase event is FREE for Institute Members to attend, and an excellent opportunity to connect with concrete colleagues, and network with those in the wider Adelaide concrete construction industry. A great way to begin 2017 in Adelaide!
