Overview

This presentation will be an overview of why AS3850 has been updated, the challenges associated with the previous version of the standard, and the improvements within the new standard. The update brings the standard in line with current industry practices and will help improve the uptake of precast concrete manufacture in Australia. 

Included in the webinar is a second presentation which will focus on the safety aspects of precast design and look at the role played by the "in-service" designer and the erection designer. The seminar is a jointly organised event between the Concrete Institute of Australia and National Precast Concrete Association Australia.

The National Seminar Series titled, 'Changes to Australian Standard AS3850 - Prefabricated Concrete Elements' was run in August 2016, and is now available for purchase as a recorded webinar.

The seminar looks at the reforms made to the industry and to the documents formally known as AS3850 Tilt-up Concrete Construction.
