This free lecture is organised by the Institution of Civil Engineers South West.

Concrete is ubiquitous in the built environment, being used in schools, hospitals, homes, offices, transport infrastructure, energy supply, water distribution and so on, for centuries and second only to water as the most consumed substance on earth. 

Specifying modern concrete mixes, designing to new state-of-the-art techniques and standards and constructing using latest innovations are more challenging with demands to implement sustainability.

The talk aims to serve as an introduction to and an overview of the latest developments in sustainable concrete construction. The talk will present the book and provide useful guidance with further references to students, researchers, academics and practitioners of all construction disciplines who are faced with the challenge to design, specify and construct a more sustainable built environment using concrete.
