Visual concrete is once again being appreciated and used expressively by architects. This is due, in part, to the thermal mass of concrete to reduce the heating and cooling loads. While there is a desire to use ‘visual’ or ‘architectural’ concrete, there can be a lack of information on how to specify and successfully construct visual concrete. The latest version of the National Structural Concrete Specification (NSCS) from Construct, the concrete frame contractors’ trade association, now makes the specification of visual concrete much easier. This free seminar will provide guidance on how to specify visual concrete and how it has been achieved.
