Following the success of last year’s event, the third Evolving Concrete seminar took place at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre on 28th September 2017. Under the theme of ‘Forming Our Future’, the one-day CPD-accredited seminar presented industry experts speaking on a selection of diverse topics with exhibition stands.
Max Frank gave a presentation at the event on the subject of “Evolution of visual and durable concrete: the use of controlled permeability formwork on the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee”.
Due to its proximity to the Firth of Tay, the new and iconic V&A Museum is susceptible to chloride attack from sea salts as well as exposure to arduous wind, rain and freeze-thaw conditions. Max Frank’s presentation examined the measures which have been taken, through the use of controlled permeability formwork liner (CPF), to prevent such concrete deterioration to the structure and, at the same time, producing a dark, textured and aesthetically pleasing concrete finish.
Organised by Concrete Society, Evolving Concrete 2017 was again a huge success. Read more here.
