TAFE Restaurant
Level 2 - Block C 66 Ernest Street, South Brisbane QLD 4101


The slab and pavement is the lifeblood of any facility, so it is extremely important that they are constructed to suit each specific application and stand the test of time.

We have four industry experts discussing three different and diverse topics that are each very important to consider well before any project begins.

Talks will compare the different types of projects and finished product, the importance of good design detailing and what to consider, and just one of the ways to futureproof your facility.

This seminar will be of interest to all levels of the industry, including designers, asset owners, and contractors.

If you have any enquiries please contact Gayle Townsend on 0459 590 044 or [email protected].

Slab & Pavement Design – Get the Detailing Right
What design aspects return the highest performing concrete floors and pavements?

Elise will explain how the detailing of a slab or pavement is extremely important to get right during the design phase to ensure that it will perform as it is intended to and what areas are sometimes overlooked that need to be considered.
The presentation will include how it is equally important to ensure that those details considered during the design phase are executed correctly on site.  Elise will talk about her experiences from site and what to look out for. The presentation will help to ensure the long term performance of your asset.
