Readymix concrete conference

Live demonstrations are the hallmark of The Readymix Conference by SarmaSouth Africa’s construction industry professionals should attend the two-day Readymix Conference by Sarma 2015 to explore new products, equipment and techniques that are pushing the boundaries of construction and changing the way that structures are built.

The conference will feature technical and strategic talks on a broad variety of subjects relating to readymix concrete and construction requirements in South Africa. Cost effective new techniques and materials have the ability to speed up and improve the quality of construction in the country.

Johan van Wyk of the Southern Africa Readymix Association (Sarma) says readymix concrete is the most widely used building material on construction sites throughout the world and new technologies in the field are constantly testing the limits of construction in terms of speed, strength, energy efficiency and aesthetics.

Shaping the nation

“For this reason it is imperative that professionals in the field of readymix manufacture, contractors, engineers, architects and all professionals in the construction industry attend the conference and work together to find solutions to modern day challenges that are facing the local industry at present.

“Whether it be finding cost effective solutions to deliver infrastructure, faster house building methods, improving the energy efficiency of buildings or simply to establish reliable supply chains with trustworthy suppliers, then The Readymix Conference by Sarma is a must attend event for everyone involved in the industry. “

Readymix is the star performer at this year’s conference and, in addition to various expert talks, there will also be large indoor and outdoor exhibitions, live demonstrations of concrete pumping and polishing, as well as a competition for delegates to establish the effects of drunk driving and fatigue on drivers.

Members will also have the opportunity to attend the association’s annual general meeting before the start of the conference on the 13th of August.
