The Concrete Centre is staffed by architects, structural engineers, and material specialists and our aim is to enable designers to realise the potential of concrete for their projects.

Online learning

The Concrete Centre regularly runs webinars on a range of topics. Forthcoming webinars are shown in the event calendar. There are also a range of webinars available via our on-demand webinar hub. These on-demand CPD sessions cover the most popular topics and can be viewed at any time. There is no charge for our webinar and CPD services. 

In addition, we have a number of case studies on this site that contain useful guidance for the design and construction of concrete. Alternatively, visit our Publications Library

Project assistance

If you are at the design stage of your project and need generic guidance on concrete solutions we can help. By providing access to our expertise, as well as our technical best practice guidance, we can assist you.

For more information please email info@concretecentre.com with your question, and include 'Project Assistance' in the subject line.

Training and CPD

For larger groups we can deliver presentations to your office and/or team. Please be aware that demand is high for these presentations, and we cannot fulfil every request. The presentations can be delivered via Zoom, allowing several office locations/ groups of staff to join in the same presentation. CPD certificates of attendance are available following the presentation. 

An example pf the range of topics we can deliver is listed below.  

To request a presentation in your office, please send an email to cpd@concretecentre.com, providing as much detail as possible, including topic required, numbers of people likely to attend and any other relevant information. A member of our team will then get back to you.

Regional clubs

The Concrete Centre team can provide CPD presentations to regional clubs, for example RIBA, IStructE, ICE and The Concrete Society.

If you would like to discuss our availability for speaking engagements in your region, please email cpd@concretecentre.com and include 'Regional Club' in the subject line.
