The August edition of Concrete Trends is now available online; click here to read – and what a fantastic issue it is! The edition highlights women’s increasingly important role in construction and covers the Awards presented at TotallyConcrete Expo 2014.
There are sections on formwork and scaffolding; health and safety; and green building and sustainability. Our latest Mover and Shaker is a member of the precast sector who has committed himself to the belief “that every person who has the capacity should strive to improve his environment, not destroy it.” He is living that life at home and also at work.
The sustainable structures showcased here are an affirmation of the strong trend in building to save our planet and its dwindling resources. Continuing the theme of sustainability, there is a discussion on the various durability test methods and their strengths and limitations.
There are interesting new developments in a wide range of concrete-related products as well as reports of challenging construction projects. In architecture the focus is on the amazingly innovative new developments in enhancing concrete properties and performance. ‘Blingcrete’ is a name you may not have heard before, but it is part of the future.
Finally, for our advertisers, we are glad to say that bonus distribution for the August issue includes African Ports Evolution, 1-3 September and Cape Construction Expo, 13-14 August will give you wider-than-usual exposure.
