Cornish Concrete Products offer CPD certified seminars examining precast concrete building solutions. Seminars are usually one hour in duration and can be held at your offices at a time to suit you.

 

PRECAST CONCRETE - THE FUTURE OF LOW CARBON BUILDINGS

The seminar will give a greater understanding of off-site precast concrete manufacturing methods, the theory of thermal mass, insulated sandwich panel construction and the contribution precast concrete can make to low carbon buildings. It also studies the use of secondary aggregates in concrete and their effect on BREEAM ratings. This seminar further examines different methods of construction utilising precast solutions, including steel/concrete frame and, in particular, crosswall construction methods.
 

 

VISUAL CONCRETE - A STUDY OF ARCHITECTURAL PRECAST CONCRETE FINISHES

The seminar aims to provide details of the different types of finishes and formwork solutions which can be achieved with precast concrete, their limitations and their benefits. It also examines the possibilites that graphic concrete offers.

 

TAKE A FRESH LOOK AT CONCRETE FRAMES - PRECAST AND HYBRID ATERNATIVES

A study of the use of precast in concrete frame construction both as part of a hybrid structure and as a complete precast solution. The seminar will highlight the programme, performance and quality advantages of incorporating precast elements into the structure.
