Jointly organized by:

Building and Construction Authority and Singapore Concrete Institute.

Sponsored by WAK Technologies Pte Ltd


This is a one day training course covering the principles of quality management for ready-mix
concrete production.

Synopsis
High Performance Concrete offers many opportunities to cast bespoke structures, however; at the
point of casting, key physical and durability properties generally remain unknown. Problems are
often only discovered on completion of testing of the hardened concrete perhaps twenty days later.
This one day course commences with an overview of the problem and existing quality assurance
schemes for the control of ready-mixed concrete.
The potential fore reducing this risk of non-conforming concrete and the key requirements and
controls necessary for products certification are then covered. Finally a workshop will allow
delegates to improve their knowledge and understanding through a series of tutorial and case
studies.
