Concrete Futures - Exploring Innovation and New Technology
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.
Find out how concrete is evolving and innovating to deliver a sustainable built environment now and for future generations.

This document provides information on the material and resource efficiency of concrete and masonry.
This publication seeks to provide information for structural engineers who are designing tall buildings in concrete.
Concrete's ability to provide passive cooling is widely applied in both new and refurbished buildings; this guide explains thermal mass and its advantages.
This publication widens the understanding of post-tensioned floor construction and illustrates the considerable benefits.
