The continued expansion in the use of prefabricated and precast building elements has seen a parallel expansion in the range of products and tools developed specifically to lift, connect and align such elements to each other, and to the supporting structure as a whole.
A thorough understanding of how these sytems behave & interact is important for design and construction engineers, as they are critical to:
  • Performance
  • Safety
  • Durability
  • Efficiency
This National Seminar series will feature Professor Rolf Eligehausen, an acknowledged global authority on anchorage in concrete, as well  as Australian experts actively engaged in the design and specification of precast elements and construction systems.
