Please entire a rapid feedback stare about your skills this day at

Be half of us for a webinar on Thursday 13th August as we focus on the long-established engineering principles of develop for Precast concrete.

Dr Shan Kumar, winner of the licensed John Connell Gold Medal Award 2019*, will lead our dialogue on easiest narrate outcomes for engineers and diversified stakeholders, sharing insights into the advantages of utilising Precast, by the utilize of related case studies.

This webinar will point of curiosity on building consciousness, making improvements to building develop and cutting again fees. We are in a position to elaborate solutions to develop in precast concrete, the principles of ‘develop for manufacturability and assembly’, along with as how precast concrete can enact a cut price in both materials fees and building time.

Key Issues:

Total principles of precast concrete
Key sides and advantages of develop for manufacturability and assembly
Chop price of fees and building time
Local and Worldwide case studies
*The John Connell Gold Medal Award recognises a prime contribution to the standing and prestige of the structural engineering profession.
