Ancon supports the fourth ‘Evolving Concrete’ conference and exhibition

Evolving Concrete will once again welcome more than 120 delegates to the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre in Reading on Thursday 20th June 2019. 

Book to attend Evolving Concrete

The day offers a chance to network with like-minded professionals and discuss new products and techniques with some 20 exhibitors, including Ancon on Stand Number 18. Ancon’s stand will showcase the latest high integrity steel fixings, engineered specifically for the UK concrete sector, and provide the opportunity to talk to our technical representatives about your specific project requirements.

Under the spotlight at this event will be two new products, the KSN Anchor Box and the CB Coupler Box; both systems simplify slab-to-wall concrete connections which in this sector can significantly accelerate the speed of construction.

The conference also presents a series of industry experts giving talks on a range of diverse and important topics, including Ancon’s Hervé Poveda, Divisional Manager of Products for Structural Concrete. Hervé will discuss how reinforcing bar couplers and reinforcement continuity systems helped to reduce rebar congestion, improve build quality and accelerate the speed of construction on the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.

An evening dinner will round off the day with special guest dinner speaker - architectural designer, writer and TV presenter - Charlie Luxton. 

This event is open to both Society members and non-members, and will be of particular interest to architects, consultant engineers and contractors. To reserve a ticket please visit www.evolving-concrete.org.
