Our speakers who all have many years of experience in their field, will share with the audience insights of project design, mix design and application where shotcrete is a key element of the project.
By attending, you will obtain a better understanding of shotcrete mix design, and the application of this highly versatile medium. You will hear about the recently released MRTS272 Shotcrete for Aboveground Applications, and the relevance to specifiers, designers and contractors.

Special offer to everyone who registers to attend this seminar of a 10% discount when purchasing the Z5 - Shotcreting in Australia 2020 handbook.
This document is based on established practice within the Australian context and has been updated for 2020, it is targeted toward designers, specifiers, owners, suppliers, contractors and other end users of shotcrete.  From limited beginnings in the 1960s, shotcrete has emerged as the first choice for ground support in the general construction and mining industries sand is increasingly being used in other applications.  More information is available on the CIA Website.

Mix design, materials and equipment
Niki Jackson, GCP Applied Technologies
Niki will share with the audience the technical aspects of mix design, materials and equipment used in shotcrete. The presentation will provide information relating to shotcrete applications, and how concrete differs to shotcrete. Drawing on his knowledge of chemical ad-mixtures Niki will be able to provide a better understanding of how these elements interact with the shotcrete that could enable specifiers and contractors to obtain optimum performance from a shotcrete application.

71 Seaview Terrace, Sunshine Beach
Allan Herse, PCA Ground Engineering
Sunshine Beach is located directly adjacent to the millionaires playground of Noosa Heads in South East Queensland. Nestled against the southern side of the Noosa National Park, 71 Seaview Terrace is a unique location with uninterrupted views of the Noosa headland and Coral Sea.
The project involved the design and construction of high and low pressure grouted micropile earth retention and foundation systems with an internal shotcrete “wet wall” as an alternative to the confirming secant pile design. 
Access to the site was heavily restrictive and Allan’s presentation will cover the significant challenges faced during both design and construction of this project which is now holding up a multi award winning trophy home in arguably one of Australia’s most picturesque and exclusive locations.
