Readymix concrete is the most widely used building material in the South African construction and civils industry today. New formulae and new techniques are changing the way we use readymix and are giving construction professionals a new arsenal to conquer almost any building challenge.
For this reason the “Readymix Conference by SARMA” an annual event organised by the Southern Africa Readymix Association (SARMA), will be showcasing many of the new developments in the industry including new cement, new techniques and equipment for use my both manufacturers, as well as construction professionals.
SARMA general manager, Johan van Wyk, says some of the highlights of this year’s conference will be the complete erection of a tilt-up concrete house at the venue within just a few hours. Some innovative machinery will also be displayed and discussed, to save money in the elimination of wastage, allow contractors to work faster and readymix suppliers to maintain better control of their mixes.
Concrete and cement
“We will also have the major cement suppliers present and will be hosting panel discussions and papers relating to cement, mixes, sustainable development and an array of other readymix related topics that will be presented by industry experts.
“It is important for users and readymix manufacturers alike to remain up-to-date with happenings in the industry.
Readymixed concrete delivery is changing and building techniques are too. We advise everyone in the industry to be part of the change and come see the new advancements and how these can improve techniques and expand company’s offerings.
