Concrete Futures at Futurebuild: Exploring Innovation and New Technology

1 Mar 2019

The challenges that face our built environment seem to be increasing, as are the demands we make of our buildings and infrastructure. We need robustness and solidity to feel safe and secure, we must build-in resilience to climate change and be able to deal with overheating, flooding, storms… all in an increasingly urban environment where high-density housing can exacerbate some of these issues. We must ensure solutions are low carbon, material efficient and without compromising quality and performance standards, such as fire safety and non-combustibility.

This Futurebuild feature, in partnership with The Concrete Centre and This is Concrete is exploring innovation and new technology in materials, production, logistics, construction and re-use. The mix of physical exhibits and video will feature new concrete, smart concrete, digital and lean construction. Find out how concrete is evolving and innovating to deliver a sustainable built environment now and for future generations. 

A beautifully choreographed display of materials, samples, video content and more will be on display in the Concrete Futures feature. Come and take a look on stand E80 in the Materials Hub. The latest This is Concrete magazine 'The Shape of Things to Come' accompanies the Concrete Futures feature and includes features on Innovation, Digital Construction, Sustainability, and Concrete on Mars.
